A friend recently guided me to a volume of a series which I haven’t looked at for many a year, Will Durant’s The Story of Civilization. Perhaps the timing was providential, since we are seeing many of the foundations of civilization under attack by demonically goaded ideological fools, mostly ignorant of the past.
In Vol. 4: “The Age of Faith”, Durant has a section on the revival of Latin. There is a poem in this section which is worthy of attention.
Hildebert of Lavardin (1055? – 1133) is probably not close to the top of your reading list these days. I must say that Hildebert has got game.
