Overview

Latin Philology deals with Latin texts from antiquity to the beginning of the Middle Ages. The focus is on general and Latin literature, especially the literary texts that founded European literature and European science. The students gain insights into Roman culture, history and intellectual history as well as their aftermath in Europe. Neighboring disciplines such as Ancient History and Greek Philology are integrated into the course.

The acquisition of basic knowledge in the field of Greek language and literature, the exemplary treatment of the contexts of Latin literature as well as the after-effects of ancient Latin literature in Latin literature of the Middle Ages and the early modern period are also part of the course.

The students acquire methodological skills in dealing with language and literature, with which they examine the language system and language history as well as texts of the most important literary genres. Active language and translation skills play a central role in the course. The students get an overview of the conditions of origin, prerequisites and after-effects of ancient Latin literature by studying classical Latin poetry on the basis of key authors as well as its reception in later epochs.

The 60 CP module offer does not cover the entire subject of the course (see course structure).
