Using an introduction to mythology by the master storyteller Ovid himself, the authors have prepared a unique teaching tool designed to achieve proficiency at Latin in one year at the college level, two years at the high school or intermediate level. The volume provides students with imaginative, connected reading, beginning with introductory prose versions of Ovid's simple myth tales and progressing to the rich poetry of Ovidian Latin (with appropriate teaching aids) within forty lessons. The grammatical approach is traditional, but the central emphasis is on reading. In each chapter the reading appears first, followed by the vocabulary, the grammar, exercises, and etymology relating to the vocabulary. The exercises begin with a group of questions in Latin (based on the reading), to be answered in Latin. Each tale is preceded by a brief discussion in English of the story and its mythological significance. The myths retold by Ovid and the attractive format are conceived to impel the student into acquiring the skill to read the author in the original language. For additional complimentary materials on this topic, please see Latin Via Ovid Audio materials (available via downloadable flash drive and cassette tapes) by Norma Goldman and Jacob E. Nyenhuis and the accompanying text Practice, Practice: A Latin Via Ovid Workbook by Norma Goldman and Michael Rossi.

Briefe aus der Verbannung / Tristia. Epistulae ex Ponto

Im Jahre 8 n. Chr. wird Ovid aus nicht bekanntem Grund von Kaiser Augustus nach Tomis am Schwarzen Meer verbannt, an den Rand der zivilisierten Welt, in eine trostlose Gegend, in der niemand Latein spricht und die er bis zu seinem Tod 17 n. Chr. nicht mehr verlassen wird. Er beginnt, verzweifelte Briefe zu schreiben - man würde sie heute "Offene Briefe" nennen - und diese nach Rom zur Veröffentlichung zu schicken. Sie sind sorgsam dichterisch komponiert, der Stil ist geschliffen und sie haben nur ein Ziel: die öffentliche Meinung in Rom für ihn einzunehmen; erfolglos, wie wir wissen. Gleichwohl sind die Briefe bewegende Dokumente frühester Exil-Literatur. Sie wurden das ganze Mittelalter über gelesen und haben das moderne Bewusstsein Europas mitgeprägt. Die neue Einführung des Münchner Altphilologen Niklas Holzberg und die neuen besonders ausführlichen Anmerkungen zu den unzähligen versteckten Anspielungen in den Briefen untersuchen sorgfältig, was an Ovids Klagen echt und was "Literatur" ist, wo er unter der Unerträglichkeit des Exils tatsächlich leidet und wo er nur gängigen Vorstellungen über die Wildnis am Pontos Ausdruck verleiht. Eingeleitet und erläutert von Niklas Holzberg.

A goodly heritage

essays in honor of the Reverend Dr. Elton J. Bruins at eighty

The fifteen essays is this festschrift pay homage to a colleague, mentor, and friend, whose professional career has spanned more than fifty years. After retiring in 1992 as the Blekkink Professor Emeritus of Religion at Hope College, Elton J. Bruins came out of retirement less than two years later to serve for another eight years as the founding director of the Van Raalte Institute. Now he will retire again, this time from his post as the Philip Phelps Jr. Research Professor at the Van Raalte Institute. The essays fall into three categories, all of which reflect different aspects of the dedicatee??'s career. The first ten essays concern church history and theology, for Bruins spent most of his career in the field of religion, first as pastor of two different Reformed Churches in New York, then as a professor of religion at Hope College. The next two focus on different aspects of the life and influence of the Reverend Albertus C. Van Raalte, D.D., founder of Holland, Michigan, to whom Bruins devoted much of his scholarly research over more than three decades. The final three essays deal with local history, specifically the history of Hope College, Western Theological Seminary, and the Joint Archives of Holland. These well-researched and well-edited essays range broadly across these three fields. They cover everything from religious conflict in the nineteenth century, to the Civil War, to Hope College history, to a noble experiment in unifying community archives, to recent ideological conflict in the field of Reformation history, to contemporary issues in the Reformed Church in America (RCA). This volume represents a major contribution to the fields of history, theology, andchurch history.
