Who we are

2019 – 2020 Committee

Ianus

Ianus

President

Jan Preiss grew up in Bohemia and was more of a scientist when he first attended the scholae aestivae in Accademia Vivarium Novum. Soon after, drawn into the world of Classics, he started his studies of Greek and philosophy. He is now an undergraduate at New College. Jan is particularly interested in Latin and Greek as the core of the common transnational identity of the Western civilisation and in the way in which the direct method can take our aesthetic experience of ancient texts to a wholly new level. He also likes opera, tennis, and modern technologies.

Ianus Bohemus philosophiae naturali potius quam litteris studiosus erat cum primum scholas aestivas Accademii Vivarii Novi petivit. Mox tamen alacritas litterarum eum ad studia linguae Graecae philosophiaeque adduxit. Nunc quidem in Collegio Novo primam lauream in litteris humanioribus impetrat. Ianus putat linguas Latinam Graecamque maxime hac de causa colendas esse, quod iis quasi vinculis omnes societatis Occidentalis nationes coniungi possunt. Studet quoque modis quibus ratio docendi viva conspectum litterarum aestheticum mutare atque profundiorem facere possit. Delectatur melodramatibus, tenniludio, arte technica.

Ivanus

Ivanus

Vice president

Iván Parga Ornelas is currently an assistant teacher at the Accademia Vivarium Novum in Rome, where he started his Latin studies in 2009. He graduated in classical and Christian literature at the Pontificium Institutum Altioris Latinitatis in Rome and in medieval studies at the Complutense University of Madrid. He organizes events for the OLP in Rome and Oxford, including the Septimana Latina, and manages Humaniora Studia. His interests are in medieval and Neo-Latin literature, especially Petrarch, Erasmus, and Maffeo Vegio, and is working on a Spanish translation of Richard of Saint Victor’s Benjamin Major sive De gratia contemplationis. His favourite book is the Aeneid.

Ivanus est nunc sub-doctor in Academia Vivarii Novi Romae sita, ubi primum Linguae litterisque latinis anno 2009 incubuit. Propter studia litterarum classicarum et christianarum a Pontificio Instituto Altioris Latinitatis lauream accepit, et postea ab Universitate Complutensi Matritensi coronatus est propter studia de Aetate Media. Is quoque conventus et itinera Societatis Oxoniensis tum Romae tum Oxonii ordinandos curat, necnon operam impendit commentariis cui nomen Humaniora studia est. Studet imprimis litteris Mediae Aetatis et recentioribus, praesertim Petrarcae, Erasmo, et Mapphaeo Vegio atque in linguam hispanicam opus Richardi Sancti Victoris, cui titulus est Benjamin Major sive De gratia contemplationis, convertit. Opus praeter cetera dilectissimum ei est Vergili Aeneis.

Althea

Althea

Secretary

Althea Sovani comes from Italy and is an undergraduate studying Classics with Oriental Studies at the University of Oxford. She is especially fond of writing and translating and from a very young age started loving literature and grammar. Nothing delights her more than enquiring into the origin of words and decoding grammatical structures. Her favourite authors are Marcus Aurelius, Pseudo-Longinus and Lucan. She cannot bear the use of the term thing and defends all words from maiming abbreviations, adjectives from superlatives, clauses from stylistic impoverishment and synonyms from oblivion.

Althea Itala litteriis classicis orientalibusque operam Oxonii dat. Artem scribendi atque vertendi praecipue diligit et a puella litterarum atque grammaticae amore capta est. Nihil est ei antiquius quam ut radices verborum quaerat atque sententiarum stucturas iuncturasque inspiciat. Inter auctores qui maxime eam delectant Marcus Aurelius, Pseudo-Longinus atque Lucanus numerantur. Omnino usum verbi rei non fert et strenue prohibet quominus omnia mutilentur verba atque minuantur, superlativus adiectiva subigat, sententiae stilo extenuentur atque in ruinam obliviaque praecipitent synonyma.

Cynthia

Cynthia

Treasurer

Cynthia is a first year DPhil student at Jesus College writing on music and Pythagoreanism in Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Though she grew up with classical languages, she only began speaking them when she joined the Latinitas Project last year during her masters degree at Brasenose College. Before coming to Oxford, Cynthia received her B.A. from Baylor University in Classics and Linguistics. Along with Latin and Greek, she has a passion for music, dance, and food.

Cynthia apud collegium Iesus dissertationem suam doctoralem de Ovidio et musica Romana Pythagoreaque scribit. A primis annis Latine Graeceque legebat neque umquam his linguis locuta est donec in societate nostra partem capere coepit. Primam suam lauream in litteris classicis atque philologia apud Universitatem Baylorensem impetravit, lauream vero magistralem apud collegium Aenei Nasi. Praeter litterarum studium, Cynthiae maxime placet saltare, commedere, instrumentis voceque canere.

Ayelet

Ayelet

Coordinator of Septimana Latina

Ayelet Wenger teaches the OLP introduction to spoken Latin. She spent two years studying classical rabbinic literature in Israel, received her B.A. in Classics, summa cum laude, from Princeton University, and now reads for the M.Phil. in Judaism and Christianity in the Graeco-Roman World. Her thesis analyzes Septuagintalisms in the Gospel of Luke. Ayelet loves backpacking and other forms of wandering, Derek Walcott, and frequentatives.

Diana ducit tirones per terras et maria (paludesque, interdum) illius libri qui Familia Romana nominatur. Studuit litteris rabbinicis per duos annos in Palestina, postea litteris classicis apud universitatem Princetonensem. His temporibus operam dat litteris Christianorum et Iudaiorum temporibus Graecorum Romanorumque, tractatumque de Septuaginta apud evangelium secundum Lucam scribit. Diana diligit vagare, Derek Walcott, et verba frequentativa.

Symeon

Symeon

Simon is a third-year Mathematics undergraduate who spends too much time reconstructing Plautine Latin phonology. Having only had a term’s worth of Latin grammar when he joined Latinitas, he was very impressed with how effective the direct method was, and now is looking into the methodological issues of using a reconstructed pronunciation in class. Simon is also interested in the history of natural philosophy and is currently writing a paper on ancient planetary motion models. He likes connecting relatives, Archilochus, Merovingian Latin and irregular plurals.

Symeon lauream suam primam apud Collegium Sanctae Catherinae impetrat in rebus mathematicis. Amore tamen linguarum antiquarum captus, factus est socius OLP ut citius legere antiquos posset, verbisque intellectis ut disputaret de sensu eadem lingua qua legisset. Praeter autem litteras ipsas delectatur rebus linguisticis, chronologicis, phoneticis, palaeographicis, et praesertim ei intersunt argumenta de methodo Orbergiana deque loco pronuntiationis restitutae in linguis antiquis docendis. Etiam iuvant Symeona astronomia Chaldaeorum et alia vincula inter Graeciam et Orientem.

Ioannes

Ioannes

Jack Woodworth is from California and is studying for a bachelor’s degree in Classics with Sanskrit at Corpus Christi. He began learning Latin and studying historical linguistics as a young teenager and has since begun learning Greek and Sanskrit at Oxford, where he is now in his third year. He teaches the beginner’s Latin class for the OLP and occasionally gives small classes/seminars on linguistic topics pertinent to Greek and Latin. His favorites in philosophy, music, and sport are Plato, John Coltrane, and Muhammad Ali.

Ioannes Californius primam lauream in litteris humanioribus atque sanscrita apud collegium Corporis Christi impetrat. Cum et linguae latinae et philologiae linguarum Romanicarum atque Indoeuropaeorum a primis annis adulescentiae studuisset, Oxonii, ubi tres iam annos versatus est, linguas Graecam et Sanscritam discere coepit. Tirones in schola Latina docet interdumque scholas de re philologica recitat. Praedilecti ei inter philosophos Plato, inter musicos Ioannes Coltrane, et inter athletas Mahometus Ali.

Ad Societatem “OLP” hoc anno scholastico seminaria literrarum scholasque linguae Latinae recitat; praesidis vero Societatis munere anno scholastico MMXVII-MMXVIII fungebatur. Postquam ad primas laureas arti musicae artibusque bonis studuerat, lauream de litteris anglicis antiquioribus magistralem adepta est.

Brennus

Brennus

Brian Lapsa took his first B.A. in History and German at the University of Virginia, worked for a time, and found his way back into academic life through Paris and Leuven, where he worked as a translator and finished an M.A. and M.Phil. in Philosophy. Seduced by Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, and Boethius, and fascinated by the history and philosophy of humanities education, he is currently reading for a second B.A. in Classics at Oxford, at Brasenose College, and is simultaneously Assistant Researcher in Roman History at the University of Latvia. Brian served as President of the Oxford Latinitas Society in 2018-19.

Brennus Lapsa laurea coronatus est propter studia historiae et linguae cultusque Germanorum apud universitatem Virginiae. Posthac operam aliis negotiis collocavit, donec demum studia academica iterum Lutetiae Parisiorum et Lovanii suscepit, ubi Philosophiae incubuit. Amore admirationeque Platonis, Aristotelis, Ciceronis atque Boethii captus, et intentus studiis humanioribus, nunc secundam lauream classicorum studiorum Oxonii apud Collegium Aenei Nasi impetrat simulque Romanorum res gestas investigat apud Universitatem Studiorum Letonensem. Brennus anno scholastico MMXVIII-MMXIX Societati Oxoniensi Latinitatis praeerat.

Ludovicus

Ludovicus

Lewis Scarpellino is an undergraduate at St. Anne’s College, Oxford, studying Classics. Before coming to Oxford, Lewis attended King Edward VI School in Stratford-on-Avon (2007-2014) and the Accademia Vivarium Novum in Rome (2014-2015). For Lewis it is the grace of having experienced the joy of bringing together the studia humanitatis with true friendship and community, and the desire to share this experience with others that makes the OLP project so dear and important. Lewis was the Secretary of the Oxford Latinitas Project in 2018-2019, and he was also the society’s Greek teacher.

Ludovicus Scarpellino appellor et impetro primam lauream in litteris classicis in collegio Sanctae Annae, Oxonii. Antequam Oxonium studendi causa me contuli, discipulus eram in King Edward VI School in Stratford-upon-Avon (2007-2014) et in Academia Vivarii Novi (2014-2015), quae Romae sita est. Quod illud gaudium quod studiis humanioribus cum amicitiae societate coniunctis evenit experiri mihi licuit, indeque quod hoc ipsum aliis tradere partirique gestio, ideo hoc nostrum inceptum cum tanti momenti esse videtur tum mihi tam cordi est. Anno scholastico MMXVIII-MMXIX scribae munere fungebar, necnon magister linguae graecae nostrae societatis eram.

Hibernus

Hibernus

John-Francis (Eriugena) Martin was the 2018-19 Treasurer of the OLP. An Irishman, he grew up in the countryside of deep-clodded Meath, fertile heartland of the river Boyne. He was educated by the Jesuits at Clongowes Wood, with a year at Schola Nova (Belgium), where he was first exposed to spoken Latin, and many wonders besides, under the inspiring tutelage of Prof. Stéphane Feye. Moved by a love of Virgil and his Bucolics, he read Classics at Trinity College (Dublin). He is currently reading for an MPhil in Late Antique and Byzantine Studies at Corpus Christi College (Oxford), focusing on the network of Byzantine Catholic humanists in the century leading up to the fall of Constantinople.

Ioannes Franciscus Eriugena rebus pecuniariis anno scholastico MMXVIII-MMXIX apud OLP praeerat. Natione Hibernus, in campis apertis atque pratis profundis provinciae Meath, quae, fertilis terra a flumine Boyne irrigatur, crevit. Ab Jesuitis in Collegio Conglowense (Clongowes Wood) educatus est atque annum in Schola Nova, in Belgio sita, apud mirabilem professorem Stephanum Faye, degit. Inde, captus amore et admiratione Vergilii Buccolicorum carminum, litteris classicis in Collegio Trinitatis Dublinensi studuit. Nunc autem lauream magistralem studiorum Tardae, quae dicitur, Antiquitatis et Byzantii apud collegium Corporis Christi Oxonii impetrat. Operam imprimis collocat humanistis catholicis byzantinis qui saeculo ante expugnationem Constantinopolis floruerunt.

Renatus

Renatus

Alwaleed Alsaggaf was born in in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and lived there till the age of 16 when he moved to London to pursue his studies. He studied Latin and Greek at the Accademia Vivarium Novum in 2016-2017. Alwaleed is now a finalist in philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London and a teacher of Latin language and literature at Eton College. His particular research interests are the Greek, Latin and Arab cultures and the way in which they relate, and the Latin writings of the Renaissance. Alwaleed is also passionate about Latin composition.

Renatum Arabem sive Alvalidum Latine, Alwaleed Arabice me appellant. Anno MMDCCXLIX a.u.c. in urbe Jedda, coniuge maris rubri dicta, in lucem editus, vitam usque ad sextumdecimum aetatis annum degi, tum studiorum causā Londinium me contuli, ibique duobus peractis in Lyceo annis, philosophiae cursum in universitate studiorum Londoniensi ingressus sum. Post unum autem annum, intermmisione studiorum factā, urbem Romam aeternam eo potissimum petivi consilio ut in Academia Vivarii novi, illo musarum templo, humanitatisque officina, per integrum fere annum, me linguis antiquis studiisque humanitatis, sub optimis ac doctis magistris, penitus totumque applicarem. Emensus tum illic non sine magnis fructibus studiorum curiculum, denuo Londinium regressus sum ac philosophiae studia quae intervallo haud brevi erant intermissa, revocavi, atque linguam Latinam eiusque litteras in Collegio Etonensi (vulgo: Eton College) profiteri iuventutique tradere coepi necnon etiam saluberrima humanitatis studia una cum meis optimis amicis, condita nostra societate, pro virili parte provehere enitor. Quod vero ad mea attinet studia, tanto mihi placent opere ea quae ad cultum et humanitatem Graecorum Latinorum Arabumque spectant, et in eis vinculis inter has tres gentes indagandis scrutandisque operam haud minimam collocare cupio. Ad hoc, etiam ea  aetatis renatarum artium Latina scripta me admodum delectant; artem quoque Latine scribendi magno studio prosequor. Primo huius anni tremestri inter “Lumen Litterarum II” seminaria numero quattor tradidi, ubi Ciceronis quartum Tusculnarum librum, qui de animi perturbationibus iuxta Stoicorum rationes agitur, explicandum sumpsi. Ad alterum vero tremestre illam elegantissimam Pici Mirandulani orationem, quam de hominis dignitate scripsit, consilium est mihi explicare.

Vincenzo Rosati is a master’s student in Philology, Literature and the Classical Tradition at the University of Bologna. For the current academic year, 2018-2019, he is on an Erasmus Programme in the Department of Greek and Latin at University College London, during which time he is also leading the weekly ‘Lumen Litterarum II’ sessions at Oxford with Alwaleed Alsaggaf. In 2017 he graduated with a B.A. in Classical and Christian Literature at the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome. There he wrote a dissertation, in Latin, about the pedagogical experiences of the humanistic schools led by Victorinus Feltrensis at Mantova and by Guarinus Veronensis at Ferrara, under the supervision of Professor Luigi Miraglia. He loves music and uses it for teaching ancient poetry, following the methods of his teacher Özséb Áron Tóth from the Accademia Vivarium Novum.

Inter universitatis Bononiensis magisterii discipulos numeror, ubi et philologiae et litteris classicis studeo. Hunc vero annum (MMXVIII – MMXIX) Londinii dego ibique apud Collegium Londiniense litteris classicis incumbo atque Latinam artem grammaticam doceo. Oxonii alternis ebdomadibus inter scholas quae Lumina Litterarum II vocantur litteras Latinas lego. In Accademia Vivarii Novi mansuetioribus artibus atque litteris imbutus, moderante professore Aloisio Miraglia, exercitationem ad bacchalaureatum apud Pontificiam Universitatem Salesianam impetrandum de Guarini Veronensis et Victorini Feltrensis scholis deque eorum methodis Romae anno MMXVII conscripsi. Me ars musica valde iuvat eaque utor in carminibus docendis, ut a magistro meo Eusebio Áron Tóth in Vivario Novo didici.

Maria Overy teaches Latin for Scholé Academy and is helping them incorporate direct method pedagogy into their curriculum. She previously studied philosophy with the Temenos Academy, Classics at King’s College London, Theology at Blackfriars Hall, and worked at St. Paul’s school. She was the founding secretary of the university society (2017-18). She was first compelled to study Latin, at the Accademia Vivarium Novum, when a friend told her it was “the spiritual empire of Europe”, and is now passionate about working to restore the humanistic study of the language arts, literature and philosophy for our age.

Mūnere magistrae linguae latīnae fungor prō collegiō quod ‘Scholé Academy’ vocātur atque in eōrum curriculum modōs quōs tradidit Orbergius indūcō. Antehāc in philosophiam, litterās humaniōrēs, theologiamque mentem intendēbam, et operam dabam apud lyceum Sānctī Paulī. Numeror inter eōs qui societātem Oxoniēnsem condiderunt atque ei opem ut scrība ferēbam: nunc autem adiuvō ē lonqinquō. Cum primum amīcus quīdam mihi linguam latīnam imperium Eurōpae spīrituālem esse dīxisset, tum huic linguae studēre magnoperē volui. Praetereā est mihi cordī ut artēs linguārum, litterārum, philosophiaeque reficiam.

Melinda Letts

Melinda Letts

Senior Member

I teach Greek and Latin at Jesus College and Harris Manchester College in the University of Oxford. I obtained my BA, MSt and DPhil all from Oxford University. I began to learn Latin at the age of six, from my father, who was headmaster of a very traditional boys’ prep school in the English countryside where Classics occupied the majority of the curriculum; I, my sister and two friends of ours were the only girls in the school. Teaching ancient languages is a way of giving our students the opportunity to discover the wisdom of those who have gone before us, and to discuss questions of eternal significance to humanity, and that’s why I love what I do.

Doceo linguas Graecam Latinamque apud collegium Iesus et collegium de Harris et Manchester universitatis Oxoniensis, qua universitate meas laureas primam, magistralem atque doctoralem impetravi. Linguam Latinam discere cum sex annos nata sim incepi, de patre meo, qui magister summus erat ludi parvi ubi res classicae maximam partem cursus studiorum occupaverunt (hunc ludum, qui modo pueris institutus erat, puellae solae ego sororque mea una cum duabus amicis frequentavimus). Linguas antiquas docere me maxime iuvat quia hoc faciendo discipulis facultatem possumus praebere sapientiae maiorum nostrum reperiendae et quaestiones de humanitate sempiternas disputandi.

Gregorius Hutchinson

Gregorius Hutchinson

Founding Senior Member

Gregory Hutchinson was born in 1957, in Hackney, London. He went to the City of London School and to Balliol College, Oxford, as an undergraduate and graduate, then to Christ Church, Oxford, as a Research Lecturer. In 1984 he became Fellow and Tutor in Classics at Exeter College, Oxford, and in 1998 Professor of Greek and Latin Languages and Literature. In 2015, he was appointed to the Regius Chair of Greek, and so returned to Christ Church, having really seen the world. In his research he seeks, unusually for a classicist, to give equal attention to Greek and to Latin, and to work on both prose and poetry. Prof. Hutchinson is also interested in the relation of literature to history, archaeology, philosophy, linguistics, and other areas. He is the author of numerous books, articles and chapters. His most recent book is Plutarch’s Rhythmic Prose (Oxford University Press, 2018).

Natus sum anno 1957 in vico urbis Londinii Hackney vocato. Studui primum in Schola intra pomerium Londiniense locata, tum Oxonii in Balliolensi Collegio. Posthac ad Aedem Christi studiorum proferendorum causa me contuli. Deinde ut sodalis et tutor studiorum classicorum anno 1984 in Collegium Exoniense sum ascitus; anno 1998 factus sum Graecae Latinaeque linguarum professor. Anno autem 2015 Regius Professor linguae Graecae nominatus sum; tum demum, multa per collegia vagatus, Vlixis instar, ad Aedem Christi reversus sum. Tam Graecis quam Latinis auctoribus mihi cordi est operam dare scriptaque eorum, sive numeris adstricta sive soluta oratione composita, pervestigare nullo discrimine imposito, et praeterea vincula inter litteras et historiam, archaeologiam, philosophiam, studium linguarum aliasque disciplinas elucidare. Nonnulla opera et brevia et longiora conscripsi; liber novissimus anglice Plutarch’s Rhythmic Prose (Oxonii, 2018) nominatur.
