Caleb “C.J.” Pine has been named valedictorian of the 2017 University of Notre Dame graduating class. He is an Arabic major in the Department of Classics, as well as a peace studies major and PPE minor.
This spring, Professor Hildegund Müller’s Introduction to Medieval Latin course travelled to Milan to study manuscripts at the Biblioteca Ambrosiana. Their visit offered the opportunity to not only handle manuscripts and codices in person, but also explore the historic city and its culture.
This year's Vatican humanities award, the Prize of the Pontifical Academies, confirms that Latin is indeed still relevant: its themes this year include methodological approaches to the teaching of Latin and the reception of Christian Latin between the medieval and modern eras.
The Notre Dame Day fundraising competition raises money for departments and groups around campus. With a $10 donation, you can help the Department of Classics receive part of the event's $1 Million Challenge Fund.
