Lateinischer Lektürekurs: Mensch und Natur. Petrarca, De ascensu montis Ventosi
**Kurs vom Sprachenzentrum der UZH und der ETH Zürich**
The primary thematic focus of this course is De ascensu montis Ventosi, written in epistolary form by the early humanist Francesco Petrarca (1304-1374). On the basis of didactically prepared text passages from this work, participants examine and reflect upon the aesthetic experience of nature. Descriptions of nature by classic Latin authors such as Catullus, Horace, and others are also consulted.
Course participants gain an understanding of various aspects of this new topic area and are able to analyse and contrast these aspects within a wider context (content focus). Participants reactivate, review, and improve their language skills (vocabulary, morphology, morphosyntax) by applying these skills to texts and in exercises (translation skills, text analysis).
