EXPERIENTIA PRAESTANTIOR ARTE
Tradition's essence—and also its justification—is in praxis. The traditionalist does not believe that things persist accidentally, but rather because there is something worthwhile in them. The pedagogic history of the 20th century has been one of forgetting lessons learned through hard experience; the task ahead is one of recalling them.
Imperium Press' Classical Curricula series recovers what is worthwhile in the pedagogy of the past. The series presents courses of study handed down to us by the greatest educators of all time.
THE LATIN COURSE
Imperium Press' Latin Course is designed around the two most renowned Latin grammars in the history of the English language: the Eton Latin Grammar, and Kennedy's Revised Latin Primer. This course takes the student from absolute beginner to reading Caesar, building a solid grammatical foundation that will allow him to continue to enjoy unadapted Latin no matter how complex.
The curriculum is as follows:
The Eton Latin Grammar
The key Latin textbook for every English schoolboy from the 16th through the 19th century.
Kennedy's Revised Latin Primer
A consistent bestseller in classics for over a century, called by Harry Mount "the ultimate rulebook of Latin".
Exercise Book for Eton Latin Grammar
An essential companion to Eton, this workbook offers exercises to aid the student in practicing the material learned in each lesson.
The Latin Reader
A compilation of Latin practice reading material, arranged in advancing level of difficulty.
