Latin Students are Published Authors

Dr. Maria S. Marsilio, Professor of Classics, mentored 11 Saint Joseph’s University students as they prepared and published in April 2013 “Gaius Valerius Catullus, Carmina 36” in the Companion to the Worlds of Roman Women (edited by Ann R. Raia and Judith L. Sebesta): Amanda Churchvara, John Eastman, Erin Forester, Kerry Horleman, Matthew Iacoviello, Eric Klien, Andre Mai, Marilyn Patternson, Stepahnie Schallenhammer, Lindsey Stamer, and Audrey Tabajonda, all students in Dr. Marsilio’s Latin 305 class.

The online Companion to the Worlds of Roman Women introduces undergraduate Latin readers to Roman women, through un-adapted Latin texts, essays, and illustrations from the early Roman Republic to the late Empire. Each Latin passage is introduced by its own image and essay that contextualize the reading. Latin expressions are hyperlinked to glosses that appear in small pop-up windows; they contain lexical, rhetorical, poetic and syntactic aids.  SPQR links provide vivid images of ancient artifacts.
