Latin Grammar: For the Reading of the Missal and Breviary
  • Latin Grammar: For the Reading of the Missal and Breviary
  • Excellent, unique resource
  • Perfect even for those with no previous Latin knowledge
  • Clear and helpful
  • Wonderful preparation to truly participate in the Latin Mass

The aim and scope of Scanlon's Latin Grammar are to prepare those with no previous knowledge of Latin to read the Missal and Breviary. Unlike most First Year Latin textbooks, it is not an introduction to the reading of Caesar. It prepares students to read the Roman Missal and Breviary. Lessons and readings from these two books, plus from the Latin Vulgate Bible. Fantastic tool for the study of Church Latin.

This way, when you participate in the Latin Mass, you will have a much richer experience.

Its twenty lessons embrace Latin grammar completely, from the first declension to the various uses of the subjunctive. Well-planned exercises, lessons and vocabulary provide a solid foundation in Latin. After the student has made a fair start, he will encounter reading lessons, which are connected passages from the two liturgical sources for which the whole book is a preparation.

A valuable part of the book is the Latin-English vocabulary. In it and throughout the book, the accented syllable is marked in all Latin words of more than two syllables. The one-year course of study provided by this textbook should enable a diligent student to read the Missal and Breviary with reasonable facility.

    Latin Grammar: Reading of the Missal & Breviary

    Many years ago, I had two years of Latin in a Catholic high school. I was looking for a good Latin Grammar book. Latin Grammar is that book. I highly recommend it as an excellent Latin review.
