The Art of Latin
The 12th and 13th centuries have been hailed as the Aetas Ovidiana for the great extent to which Ovid in uenced the literature and art. e 8th and 9th centuries have similarly been dubbed the Aetas Vergiliana for the great in uence of Virgil. Even today, a student of literature who knows their stories should be able to interpret any Renaissance artwork that captures his or her gaze. is session will look at several masterpieces as object lessons in the art of Latin. Such lessons integrate the study of Latin literature with art history, enhancing students’ overall understanding and appreciation. Such studies equip our students – and ourselves – to grow as lifelong learners and lovers of both art and Latin.
