Offered through Schola Humanistica
The fall of Constantinople at the hand of the Turks marks a pivotal moment in European history. This even had a profound impact on contemporary writers who composed letters, orations, and poems about the fate of ancient Byzantium. In this seminar we will examine and analyze several pertinent Latin texts through a historical and literary lens. This webinar not only presents an opportunity to explore texts known almost exclusively by specialists, but also provides exposure to the Latin of the humanists which in the 15th century was, at least cuturally speaking, a lingua franca.
