Living Latin Program at Belmont Abbey College

The second annual Veterum Sapientia Latin conference is being hosted at Belmont Abbey College outside Charlotte, NC this July 27-August 2.

The program is for priests, seminarians, and religious (male and female).

The program is named after the Apostolic Constitution Saint John XXIII signed on the high altar of St. Peter's defending and promoting the study of Latin by seminarians.

The instructors are Msgr. Dan Gallagher of the Vatican Latin office, Dr. Nancy Llewellyn of Wyoming Catholic College, Dr. John Pepino of Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary (FSSP), and Dr. Gerald Malsbary of Belmont Abbey College.

The program is intended for intermediate to advanced students of Latin, the minimum being two semesters of seminary Latin. It will be conducted entirely in Latin (or almost, depending on the skill level of participants). Through activities, conversation, and games the full-immersion experience helps reading comprehension and one's overall command of the language.

Cost is $250. Boarding is $25/night for a BAC dorm room. More information is available by clicking here.
