Roma Aeterna: Second Edition, with Full Color Illustrations (Lingua Latina) (Latin Edition)
Roma Aeterna (the main book of Pars II of the Lingua Latina per se illustrata series) introduces some of the most celebrated authors of Roman antiquity through the lens of Roman literature and mythology. A vivid description of the city's monuments precedes a prose retelling of the first four books of Virgil’s Aeneid, with many of the most famous passages in their original verse form. The selection from Virgil is followed by Book One of Livy's engaging mythical history of Rome's foundation. The prose selections are judiciously chosen and, in the first few chapters, gently adapted to provide students with a text that is authentically Latin and yet not difficult. The unadapted selections, which make up the majority of the text, are taken from Aulus Gellius, Ovid, Nepos, Sallust, and Horace. These annotated selections make Roma Aeterna useful both as the next step after Familia Romana and as a survey of Latin literature in its own right.Roma Aeterna incorporates the following features:

  • Latin immersion with vowel lengths marked
  • Approximately 3,000 vocabulary words
  • Short discussions of grammar and exercises for each chapter
  • Selected readings that cover the material in a Roman history course
  • Index of Roman rulers and of historical events arranged chronologically
  • Now with full-color illustrations
