Senātōrēs

reward item
reward item
$5
per month
Senātōrēs Tier Patrons and above receive access to:

• Eclogae sīve Būcolica Carmina | The Eclogues of Vergil are a seminal part of Western literature, exploring the revolutionary world of the 1st century BC through the mythical setting of the pastoral paradise.
• Ancient Greek Alive — audio recordings of all readings
• Vergil’s Aeneid
This is the LLPSI version.

• Progymnasmata Latīnitātis by Jacōbus Pontānus, very advanced level Latin language dialoguesthat, if imitated by the listener, promise the ability to speak much more like an educated native speaker of Rome, and therefore be able to read Cicero and Seneca and all the rest of the authors with incredible ease.
• Dē Variīs Colloquendī Fōrmulīs by Franmōrārius, a collection of over 1000 (!!!!) idioms, locutions, figures of speech, and proverbs from Classical and Renaissance literature. Listening to these audio recordings will allow the listener to become very familiar with the most common, most important, and most delightful expressions of Roman speech.

•  the hundreds of hours of downloadable audio files available to Equitēs ($1) tier supporters, 
•  the Tribūnī ($2) tier «Recitātiōnēs Pinguī Minervā» weekly series of Patreon-exclusive recordings, and the Roma Aeterna course.

Maecēnātiānī

reward item
reward item
$10
per month
Maecēnātiānī Tier Patrons and above get access to:

• Caesar, Dē Bellō Gallicō • Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic Wars

• Reading Greek, taught in Latin! In this series of podcast-style lessons, I teach the texts found in the book Reading Greek entirely in Latin.

• Epitome Historiae Sacrae
A supplement by Robert Carfagni, to be read after completing Familia Romana, LLPSI part 1.
• Cōnfābulātiōnēs Tīrōnum Litterāriōrum by Hermannus Schottennius Hessus, an Audio Course in Developing Fluent & Erudite Latin Speaking Ability. Schottennius, like Pontanus above, composed over 100 absolutely splendid, entertaining, and relatable dialogues with nearly impeccable Latinity. While these dialogues will challenge even an advanced Latin speaker or reader, you will find them much easier than the Progymnasmata Latīnitātis by Pontanus. For this reason, I recommend starting with some of these Confābulātiōnēs, then trying the Progymnasmata. In fact, this is not merely an audio book, but an entire course which, like the Dē Variīs Colloquendī Fōrmulīs audio book above, breaks each line of dialogue into digestable phrases that the listener may repeat, first in English, then in Latin. Thereafter the full dialogue only in Latin is heard at conversational speed.

About Luke Amadeus Ranieri

Vōs multā salūte impertiō, sodālēs! 🤠 (vidēte infrā versiōnem Latīnam)
[EN] Greetings, my friends and supporters! I am overcome with surprise and joy each day that you would consider supporting my efforts in creating content, much of it in the Latin language on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/ScorpioMartianus and https://www.youtube.com/LegioXIII (along with Jessie "Magister" Craft), as well as in English at https://www.youtube.com/PolymathyLuke. To thank you for your generous support, I have prepared many hundreds of hours of audio recordings available to you here, including beginner, intermediate, and advanced material. See the below links for samples available to the Public. The below series are all released on a regular basis to their respective tiers.

All patrons get their names printed at the end of my videos on YouTube, so if you want your name to appear in a particular way (or to use a different name), please feel free to change it here on Patreon once you sign up. Thanks!

Sermō Latīnus Rapidus
Vīta Nostra, Subsidia ad Colloquia Latīna by Stephen A. Berard, contains copious lists of vocabulary for common items and activities, and is essential knowledge for the spoken Latin community of today. In each episode, you will hear first the English, then the Latin term, allowing you enough time to guess the term before being prompted with the Latin. Then you can repeat the Latin word for further reinforcement:
