The Latin Lover Strikes Again

USA Today has a nice profile of Vatican Radio's "The Latin Lover," aka Fr. Reginald Foster. Fr. Foster is the official Latinist of the Holy See, and also teaches Latin at all different levels at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.

He is widely regarded as the world's premier Latinist. Having sat in on a few of his classes, I can say the description in the article is spot on. In the article, Fr. Foster notes that there are only 20 or so folks in the world who can speak Latin as well as he does, and only three are under age 60! (Mike, you may have found your calling!)

It appears that one of his students has compiled an online compendium of Fr. Foster's introductory Latin course. What a great resource.

Here is a link to the radio show, "The Latin Lover."

Hat tip: the excellent blog Ad Limina Apostolorum.
