Imperium Latin Book 1

(6)
Imperium is a Latin course for the 21st century; unique, highly resourced and written to make fullest use of modern technology. Its texts follow the life of the Emperor Hadrian from his early childhood to his later years, as he became the most powerful man in the Roman world. Book 1 follows the young Hadrian through his childhood in Spain and Rome. His early interests in horses, hunting and the amphitheatre are all explored, as he becomes the ward of Trajan and eventually makes his way to Rome. The historical material is close to accurate throughout, though some characters have been invented to make life challenging, such as the rather nasty little donkey who bullies Hadrian’s first horse.

Imperium Latin Book 3

(1)
Imperium is a Latin course for the 21st century; unique, highly resourced and written to make fullest use of modern technology. Book 3 takes a turn towards more difficult Latin, as fully-developed tense systems come to the fore. Hadrian is now seen to move through his early career as Trajan’s right man, in campaigns against the Dacians. His marriage to Sabina is arranged and eventually, feeling slighted in Rome, he arrives in Athens, where he becomes Eponymous Archon. Consideration is given to his achievements in architecture and imperial consolidation. Antinous is discussed, as are other matters in Hadrian’s rather difficult later life. Historical accuracy is one of the most abiding constants. This full text of Book 3 can be used freely by students and teachers, though copying and pasting has been disabled.

This is an full and original translation by Julian Morgan of the Frogs, by Aristophanes. This version was performed on May 7th 2016 in the Aula of the European School of Karlsruhe. The play is a masterpiece of fifth century Greek comedy, written at the end of an era when Athens was overwhelmed by the combined forces of Sparta and Persia. It is a piece of wonderful escapism, which helped to create a short respite for the doomed folk of a great city; people who knew they were facing meltdown. It is perhaps the last of the great Greek comedies, where freedom of speech was unrestricted and nobody cared which figures in public life were insulted or how. The main character is Dionysus, god of the theatre. His quest is to go to the Underworld and bring one of the great dead poets of Athens back to life, so the city can be saved by using his advice. Along the way, he meets a range of characters, in a journey where his cowardice and ineptitude are always prominently on display. Even the gods were fair game for the comedians of Athens, it seems. There is vulgarity in abundance here - be warned!
