Internet Resources for the Classics



C.J. HINKE, The Classical Wizard, Bangkok, Thailand & Tofino, Canada

Who says Latin is a dead language? Latin is thriving online. Teaching the classics doesn’t even need dead trees!

Websites are notoriously fluid.  If you can’t connect, do a search for title or keywords. You’ll almost always find something interesting!

Some websites have multiple names and may be duplicated here. It would be impossible to produce a comprehensive catalogue of such resources.

There are many Latin texts and other resources which have fallen into the public domain and are hosted on such sites as Google Books, WikiBooks, Project Gutenberg and Internet Archive. I have attempted to list just a few below. If you have such a book, please consider scanning it to Portable Document Format (PDF) and making it available on the Web for the benefit of other educators.

Don’t have a pagina domestica yet or haven’t created a circulus latinus for your group? I suggest you use one of the excellent, free weblog sites such as WordPress or Blogspot.

I have used categories rather freely and some resources defy cataloguing altogether! The aim of this paper is to encourage further exploration and perhaps create your very own online Latin resource. Think about starting small, with a Weblog or a YouTube video in Latin or scanning and posting some of your own course materials.

C.J. Hinke is co-translator of The Classical Wizard / Magus Mirabilis in Oz, now out-of-print. Dr. Hinke would be very grateful if some kind ACL member might point him to an enthusiastic publisher to reprint! Dr. Hinke is also a longtime member of The International Wizard of Oz Club and has been translating and publishing the Oz series into Thai language since 1992. Dr. Hinke’s last article for The Classical Outlook was “A Short Bibliography of Modern Children’s Books in Latin”, CO 83:4, pp 138-139, Summer 2006. Any additions or corrections to this checklist would be most welcome by the author. (cjATtuDOTacDOTth).

    Hello Mr. Hinke,

    I am a Latin teacher in New Jersey.

    I wish to use your Magus Mirabilis in Oz as an adjunct to my Latin classes.
    My colleague at our school may wish to do the same.

    Have you contacted Bolchazy Carducci publishers?

    I’d be very surprised if they would not want to republish this work!

    They are the world leaders in supplying Latin books of all sorts for teaching.

    To quote Benjamin Franklin: There isn’t shame in being ignorant, only in being unwilling to learn. I want to take this opportunity and thank you for allowing me to learn, so that I’m a bit less ignorant right now than I had
    been the day before.
