Boccaccio’s Famous Women (“De mulieribus claris”) is the first collection of biographies devoted exclusively to women. In this Live On-line Course we will focus on this Latin work and will read some surprising biographies, such as those of Thisbe (Pyramus’s beloved), Rhea Ilia (Vestal virgin), Leaena (prostitute), Flora (prostitute, goddess of Flowers and wife of Zephyrus), Cleopatra (Queen of Egypt), Symiamira (Elagabalus’ mother), Joan (Englishwoman and Pope), Camiola (Sienese widow) and others. Sessions, conducted entirely in Latin, have also been tailored to the interests of teachers, students, and devotees of humanistic disciplines world wide. This Course is an ideal opportunity for both students and expert Latinists worldwide who share a passion for Renaissance literature.
