A Primer of Medieval Latin was published with two purposes in mind: to provide a collection of material to prepare students to read ordinary medieval Latin texts and to meet the need of advanced students by furnishing an anthology of medieval Latin prose and poetry.
PRAISE FOR THE BOOK:
"The anthology reflects a broad literary and historical interest. . . . Too high praise cannot be given the choice of selections. Whether the student's interests lie in the medieval drama, the short story, the lyric, historical writing, he will find examples long enough to be enlightening, competently chosen and admirably edited."-- Speculum
