"Imagine eight phenomenal Latinists having a blast and chatting in Latin about Ceres's influence on the seasons, and about our own favorite seasons."
- Baltimore leader Cathy Reed
A Latin Reading Group
Who We Are
"Lupercal" is a Latin reading group that is dedicated to fostering community, practicing spoken Latin, and celebrating herstory.
We meet monthly to read a biography of a woman in Latin from
On Famous Women, written by Giovanni Boccaccio and published in 1374. Cleopatra, the poetess Sappho, Pope Joan, and the goddess Ceres are only a few of the biographies that Lupercal has explored. We use pre-reading warm-ups, questions, and creative activities to engage deeply with the text.
As we share connections with women 2000 years in the past and with fellow members right around us, we cultivate an encouraging and intellectually dynamic international community.
Come join the movement!
