I was blessed to have many years of study of Latin with the former Latin scribe for 4 Popes, Fr. Reginald Foster, OCD.
Foster had intense courses for all comers during the academic year and super intense courses during the summers. The homework sheets took most people several hours to complete. There were amazing field trips. You learned to write and to speak. Latin became a working, active language, not a dormant passive tool.
After some health problems and changes, after 40 years of teaching and writing Latin, Foster returned to these USA. Being a force of nature, he still has summer classes in his native Milwaukee.
Last week I spoke by phone with Fr. Foster, “Reggie”, who told me that his collected years and year and years of homework sheets and other materials, decades of work and experience, had been edited for publication in several volumes by Catholic University Press.
The first one will be released on 8 September: Ossa Latinitatis Sola – 800 pages!
This is Reggie’s compilation of the whole Latin language – 2300 years – in 105 encounters. This can be used by individuals or in a classroom.
There will later be volumes of his famous – infamous – homework sheets or Ludi Domestici and also his field trip materials. I still have lots of them squirreled away. Having them bound in volumes will be invaluable.
