Vatican publishes new edition of journal on Latin

Catholic World News - November 08, 2013

The Vatican has released a new issue of Latinitas, the quarterly journal designed to promote the understanding and use of the Latin language.

Latinitas, published by the Pontifical Academy for Latin, includes articles in and about Latin. For the first time, the journal will also carry articles about Latin that are written in Italian and other languages.

Introducing the new edition at a November 8 press conference in Rome, Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, the president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, quoted the noted Italian leftist leader Antonio Gramsci, saying that one does not study Latin in order to speak the language, but “to come in direct contact with the civilization of two peoples who were the bedrock of modern society.”
