Overview

Hans Orberg’s Lingua Latina: Per Se Illustrata is the world’s premier series for learning Latin through the natural method. In Lingua Latina, students first learn grammar and vocabulary intuitively through extended contextual reading and an innovative system of marginal notes. It is the only series currently available that gives students the opportunity to learn Latin without resorting to translation, but allows them to think in the language. It is the most popular text for teachers—at both the secondary and collegiate levels—who wish to incorporate conversational skills into their classroom practice.

The Lingua Latina Familia Romana Collection features the first part/year of Hans H. Orberg’s standard setting Lingua Latina series: Familia Romana. In addition to the primary textbook, this collection includes six supplementary volumes full of exercises, vocabularies, and supplemental readings. Also featured are four volumes of exemplary Latin prose sampling the likes of Cicero, Tacitus, and Martial, as well as Latin translation of Old Testament passages.

Now you can streamline your Latin language education with the digital editions of these texts. All Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Augment your vocabulary with Logos’ expansive library of Latin texts and side-by-side translations from Harvard’s Loeb Classical Library. Take the classroom with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

The Lingua Latina Familia Romana Collection (11 vols.) is only available for users in the U. S., Canada, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

  • The premier series for learning Latin with the natural method
  • Annotated samplings from classic Latin texts
  • Seamless integration of classic Latin texts
None of Lingua Latina’s competitors achieve the seamless transition from the author’s Latin to ancient Latin authors that is the hallmark of the Orberg series. When students read unadapted passages from ancient authors in Lingua Latina, they often have the impression that the ancient author’s work is even easier than the Orberg Latin they are already reading without difficulty. This is because they have been well prepared by the meticulous and almost invisible gradations in Orberg’s work.

    The problem with these are they are scans not typeset. Less than optimal... Focus publishing offers these same scans - which I am sure is what they provided Logos. I have nearly all these books and they are excellent for learning Latin. I also have the kindle version of Lingua Latina - Familia Roman volume. Personally, I rather have the text typeset for two reasons: readability and for clicking on the individual words to look up meaning or copying snippets. As far as readability goes - I don't like the out-of-focus feel to reading these as it strains the eyes. Having higher resolutions screens their scans should match iPad or Surface resolutions - 3000x2000 (267 PPI). As a comparison, look at the scans that the British Library has done: http://www.bl.uk/manuscripts/Viewer.aspx?ref=cotton_ms_nero_e_i!1_f169v (St. Patrick's Confession). If the resolutions were higher/sharper then I would be more likely to consider buying the series. Notwithstanding these criticisms, it is great that Logos is offering these for their users! This is one of the best series out there in my opinion. The Natural Language approach is great step on the way to becoming fluent. After getting through Familia Romana, read the Latin Vulgate and your fluency will soar!

    Very happy with this system. I disagree with the previous comments: while the maginal notes are less than optimal, having all these books in electronic form is wonderful. This is probably the best package for learning Latin out there, and being able to flip between books (the main text, the glossary, the grammar discussion, etc., not to mention all the other logos tools/dictionaries) with a few mouse clicks is fantastic. I love these series, and I hope Logos will bring out Roma Aeterna too one day.

    I am glad I did not buy it before reading Isaac Gould's review. I entirely agree with him! Technology IS NOT the final panacea! It is great to have everything compacted to the machine, but sometimes we need the printed form. The electronic version must be possible to print as the original!

    As great as it is to have this material in digital form, the format is ultimately unhelpful in my opinion. The marginal notes that are a hallmark of Ørberg's texts are put in as footnotes. That makes sense from a coding standpoint, but you lose the easy accessibility of the explanatory pictures and crucial grammatical information. This is also a problem in Exercitia Latina, where word banks now appear after the exercises, making it difficult to see the options, though it is nice to have fillable forms. The hyperlinked index in Familia Romana is nice, but the rest of the texts actually seem to lose utility by virtue of being digitized. The biblical texts in Epitome Historiae Sacrae don't interact with the rest of the Logos ecosystem, and the heavy use of marginal notes in that text makes reading it with popup footnotes a real chore. In browsing, I found a few spots where the text employs two columns, which would have been ideal for displaying marginal notes. I'd recommend this for all the text!
