Why have a special Latin page on this site?
We take seriously the need for easy access to a large body of compelling material in various media and at a wide range of difficulty levels. Although there is a massive amount of Latin texts from the last 2300 years, many Latinists are unaware of most of them, and it is difficult to find Latin audio and video, even though these can go a long way in helping people live in Latin and Latin live in them.
Similarly, it can be difficult for Latin teachers who want to serve their students in a way that takes seriously what we know about language and the brain to find well-organized resources to support them in this endeavor. LIMEN seeks to redress this.
Justin Slocum Bailey is the ultimate educator. He brings to every one of his pursuits extensive knowledge, curiosity about both language and people, a sense of humor, and an extraordinary ability to connect. As I strive to improve my own teaching, I try to channel what I have seen in him. He is thorough, clear, exciting, talented, interesting, and fun.
