New Acquisition: Library of Latin Texts

The University Libraries has recently acquired an important scholarly resource, the Library of Latin Texts. The Library contains texts from the beginning of Latin literature to the the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965).

The Library of Latin Texts is a searchable full-text database of classical, patristic, medieval and neo-Latin writers. It includes:

  • Literature from Antiquity (Plautus, Terence, Caesar, Cicero, Virgil, Horace, Ovid, Titius-Livius, the Senecas, the two Plinys, Tacitus and Quintilian and others).
  • Literature from Patristic Authors (Ambrose, Augustine, Ausonius, Cassian, Cyprian, Gregory the Great, Jerome, Marius Victorinus, Novatian, Paulinus of Nola, Prudentius, Tertullian and others) It also contains non-Christian literature of that period (Ammianus Marcellinus, the Scriptores Historiae Augustae, Claudian, Macrobius and Martianus Cappella).
  • Literature from the Middle Ages (Anselm of Canterbury, Beatus de Liebana, Bernard of Clairvaux, William of St. Thierry, Sedulius Scottus, Thomas à Kempis, Thomas de Celano, the Sentences of Peter Lombard, the Rationale of Guilelmus Durandus and important works by Abelard, Bonaventure, Ramon Llull, Thomas Aquinas, William of Ockham and others).
  • Neo-Latin Literature (decrees from the modern ecumenical Church councils up to Vatican II and translations into Latin of important sixteenth-century works).

The Library of Latin Texts has two parts, Series A and Serllties B. According to the publisher, Series B “is drawn from the existing scholarly editions whereas the Library of Latin Texts – Series A benefits from the additional intensive research work undertaken by the Centre ‘Traditio Litterarum Occidentalium'”

 

 

Kiki and Seton Smith: A Sense of Place

The Walsh Gallery, in collaboration with the Lennie Pierro Memorial Arts Foundation, is pleased to present Kiki and Seton Smith: A Sense of Place.

Key to this exhibition is the idea that place irrevocably impacts our sense of self. Kiki’s drawings and prints look to the natural world to understand the relationship between place and identity on a symbolic level. Seton’s large-scale photographs look to the built environment to convey associations by moving within, and navigating through, space. Contextualized in this manner, the artists explore the complex psychological and emotional terrain to be negotiated in understanding the self and the manner in which place becomes a defining characteristic of identity. The fragility of the human condition and the places we traverse in our mortal journey are the narrative impulse of this exhibition.

The Exhibition runs 10/30/16 to 12/9/16.

Join us to see why NJ.com calls this exhibit one “that shouldn’t be missed.”
