A course is offered in reading Latin for those who have completed at least one year (preferably two) of university Latin. The focus is on readings of Reformational material, some of which has not been translated into English, such as Ursinus’ commentary on the Heidelberg Catechism, the Leiden Synopsis (the standard theological textbook of the 17th century) and primarily Voetius’ Politica Ecclesiastica.
