  • Bennett, Charles E. New Latin Grammar
    • "The object of this book is to present the essential facts of Latin grammar in a direct and simple manner, and within the smallest compass consistent with scholarly standards. While intended primarily for the secondary school, it has not neglected the needs of the college student, and aims to furnish such grammatical information as is ordinarily required in undergraduate courses."

  • The Intelligent Person's Guide to Latin
    • This Project has two purposes:

    • a) To deliver an "architectonic view" of the Latin linguistic system, with a sense of what the parts mean and where they fit into a working linguistic whole. 
      b) At the same time to present a rational explanation of the individual components as they are described (paradigms and all), in the belief that we know enough about practical linguistics at this time to revamp the Classical traditional-ese jargon and talk about Latin as a language-system which was quite satisfactory for well over a millennium of varied communications.

Latin: The Key Concepts.
This is a companion to the Royal Holloway course in Beginners Latin, based on Units 1-16 of Gavin Betts, Teach Yourself Latin. It's designed principally for review by those who have already completed the course, but can be studied as an independent guide. It doesn't follow the order of material in the coursebook precisely; rather, it threads what I hope is a logical and progressive way through the grammatical topics covered.

Introduction to Ancient and Biblical Greek: Gateway
"These two sequences of online Greek courses (1331/1332 and 3331/3332) are intended to engage students with diverse backgrounds, goals, and interests, in learning interactively.  The common goal will be the acquisition of  fundamental translation skills in ancient and/or Biblical Greek.  Because the Greek "common"  (koinê) dialect resulted from a convergence of ancient dialects where Attic, the Greek spoken in Athens, predominated, instruction in ancient Greek, which is traditionally based on Attic, is at the same time an introduction to the language of the Old and New Testaments."  Gateway II

 This is a first-year course in New Testament Koine Greek. It does not assume any knowledge of Greek.

There is no cost to participate. However, the following two books must be purchased:

The IED: The Indo-European Dictionary
"The IED project is supervised by Alexander Lubotsky and Robert Beekes. The aim of the project is threefold:
  1. to compile etymological databases containing the inherited vocabulary of various Indo-European branches and to publish them on the Internet;
  2. to create an Indo-European etymological database on the Internet;
  3. to compile a new Indo-European etymological dictionary, which will replace Julius Pokorny's Indogermanisches etymologisches Wörterbuch (Bern: Francke, 1959). Although Pokorny's masterpiece is an indispensable tool used by Indo-Europeanists for all kinds of research, it is completely outdated. A new dictionary is a long-felt desideratum.
The whole project is planned in such a way that every researcher will be responsible for one language, the one in which he or she is specialized. Later, the collected evidence will be rearranged in accordance with the respective Proto-Indo-European roots."

A closer reading, however, soon reveals interesting ambiguities that are characteristic of Petronius' complex and elusive comic novel. (For critical background, see the accompanying bibliography.) The text itself is active: each word is linked to an on-line glossary, which is designed to appear in the bottom frame of the main window.

    Silva rhetoricae: The Forest of Rhetoric
    This online rhetoric, provided by Dr. Gideon Burton of Brigham Young University, is a guide to the terms of classical and renaissance rhetoric. Sometimes it is difficult to see the forest (the big picture) of rhetoric because of the trees (the hundreds of Greek and Latin terms naming figures of speech, etc.) within rhetoric. This site is intended to help beginners, as well as experts, make sense of rhetoric, both on the small scale (definitions and examples of specific terms) and on the large scale (the purposes of rhetoric, the patterns into which it has fallen historically as it has been taught and practiced for 2000+ years).

    This site has several projects on the ancient world.  Dêmos is one example:
    Dêmos · Classical Athenian Democracy · a Stoa Publication.  "Our goal is to build a digital encyclopedia of classical Athenian democracy that will be useful to a wide audience. We hope not only to describe the history, institutions, and people of democratic Athens in the 5th and 4th centuries BCE, but to invite you, our audience, to explore, discover, and judge for yourselves."
    Center for Hellenic Studies Multitext Homer Project.  Homer & other ancient texts on the model of the Perseus project.
    The Stoic Voice Journal

The Stoic Voice Journal is a free publication and is committed to the ideal of Stoic fellowship. This is a place where modern Stoics and Stoic-minded persons can share and learn in a comfortable setting. For those visitors who are not familiar with Stoicism, this is an excellent starting place to learn more about the modern Stoic experience."
    The Suda On-Line

    The Swerve
    Stephen Greenblatt.  The Swerve: How the World Became Modern.  Nearly six hundred years ago, a short, genial, cannily alert man in his late thirties took a very old manuscript off a library shelf, saw with excitement what he had discovered, and ordered that it be copied. That book was the last surviving manuscript of an ancient Roman philosophical epic, On the Nature of Things, by Lucretius—a beautiful poem of the most dangerous ideas: that the universe functioned without the aid of gods, that religious fear was damaging to human life, and that matter was made up of very small particles in eternal motion, colliding and swerving in new directions. The copying and translation of this ancient book-the greatest discovery of the greatest book-hunter of his age-fueled the Renaissance, inspiring artists such as Botticelli and thinkers such as Giordano Bruno; shaped the thought of Galileo and Freud, Darwin and Einstein; and had a revolutionary influence on writers such as Montaigne and Shakespeare and even Thomas Jefferson. 16 pages full-color illustrations

    Links to Temple's resources, including Robin Mitchell-Boyask's Classical Mythology page with her Epic page and her Greek drama page. 
    Tetius Latinitatis Lexicon
    Many months ago someone on this list or the grex alter announced the availability via the web of the granddaddy of all Latin-Latin lexicons, the Totius Latinitatis Lexicon by Egidio Forcellini. This is in a raster based format rather than character based (e.g. ascii.) and requires a plugin called cpcview. After using the programm for a few weeks, I was unable to get it to function any longer. Today I tried an alternate URL provided by Hyginus Garcia at his new web site. You can look up the Latin definitions of words like:
    SESQUIULYSSES, & Sesculysses,is, m. quasi unus & dimidius Ulysses, Varro hoc titulo inscripsit unam e satyris suis,  posuitque pro homine astutissimo & callidissimo. Citat hanc satyram Plin. in praefat. Histor. nat. & Nonius saepe.
    You can look up definitions for ancient & modern Latin terms.
    This site has introductions to the history of theater and some excellent articles on various plays, playwrites, etc.  A good place for secondary sources.  The articles are divided according to nationality, author, and subject.
    THEOI PROJECT - A Guide to Greek Gods, Spirits & Monsters
    A good site to do research on the ancient Greek gods.  "Welcome to a guide to the Ancient Greek Pantheon of Gods (Theoi), Spirits (Daimones) and Monsters (Theres). Here you will find individual entries the various divinities & monsters containing quotes sourced from a wide and growing variety of Classical Texts. Many are also illustrated with pictures from C5th BC Greek Vase Painting."
    "The media studies website with resources on identities, theorists, gender and much more."  The high point of the site is the collection of Theory Trading Cards.  Not a place to study classics itself, but a place to learn about the approaches to analyzing literature & culture that are popular today.
    TOCS-IN: Tables of Contents of Journals of Interest to Classicists
    "TOCS-IN provides the tables of contents of a selection of Classics, Near Eastern Studies, and Religion journals, both in text format and through a Web search program.

The Aristarcoj characters embody my personal appearance preferences.*  My other pick as to appearance is GentiumAlt (the regular Gentium uses the tilde accent), but unfortunately it contains no numerals."
    The Vergil Project
    "The Vergil Project is a collaborative enterprise dedicated to collecting, creating, and disseminating resources for teaching and research about Vergil. Its main goal is to develop an on-line, interactive hypertext database of all materials that might be of interest to any student of Vergil, from the novice to the professional scholar, from the passionate amateur to the casual browser.

    VRoma itself can be conceptualized in two distinct (though related) ways: 
    • an on-line "place," modeled to some extent upon the ancient city of Rome, where students and instructors can interact live, hold courses and lectures, and share resources for the study of the ancient world. As an on-line virtual environment, VRoma contextualizes and situates linguistic and cultural information within a simulated space, a virtual 'city' containing historical places (a simulation of the city of Rome circa 150 CE) and non-historical places (simulations of various types of spaces that imaginatively evoke ancient life). 
    • a collection of and filter for internet resources, which will be accessible in a variety of formats for individual learning, research and perusal. These extendible and customizable resources will include texts, commentaries, images, maps and other materials.
