A basic grasp of Latin is necessary, but the group is not intended for Latinists. Beginners are very welcome.
During Michaelmas term 2016, the group will be discussing the Cambridge Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity (1609-23) John Davenant's Determinationes Quaestionum Quarundam Theologicarum. Outlines will be provided. The first half of the gathering will be spent in translation; the second half, in discussion. Tea, coffee and light snacks may be expected.
The group convener has arranged for softback editions of Davenant's Determinationes. These are available for £8.10, which is the precise cost (+shipping) from Lulu.com. Otherwise, the text is available at www.prdl.org.
All meetings fall on Mondays, from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.
