Davenant Reading Group

The Davenant reading group provides students with the opportunity to converse with Latin theological texts from the early modern period.

THIS GROUP WILL RESUME IN LENT TERM 2018

A basic grasp of Latin is necessary, but the group is not intended for Latinists. Beginners are very welcome.

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.
