The Jerusalem Lupercal group was born in September 2019 when students taking part in spoken ancient language courses at the Polis Institute joined together to read about famous women.  Two queens of Jerusalem are featured in our texts, so these women felt profoundly close to us in the ruins of the city.  As students come and go, a copy of the Lupercal book remains in the Polis Library and readers continue to gather to discuss herstory, form friendships from around the world, and extend their immersive language studies.  However, Latinists outside the program are more than welcome, whether they live in Jerusalem or are passing through the city.
