Which Latin — does it make any difference?

Why do you recommend Classical Latin over Ecclesiastical Latin – since the Latin Vulgate is written in Ecclesiastical? I would love to know because I am planning ahead… –Amy

Ecclesiastical Latin vs Classical Latin just refers to the pronunciation of the words, not to the grammar. In the past we have preferred the Classical pronunciation — when we were young and picky. Now that I am old and find that there are more important things to worry about, I will say it doesn’t matter one bit which you choose. –Laurie Bluedorn

    Thank you for sharing this letter and your reply. Do you still prefer Artes Latinae above other Latin programs?

    Thank you,

    Yes, that’s the one I recommend. I think it’s the best self-teaching course.
