Latin revival: cathedral courses find new fans of ‘dead language’ | World news | The Guardian

Sharpley launched his Latin in the Cloisters series this year. “I’d been reading about Charlemagne and the Latin schools he started in cathedrals and monasteries 1,200 years ago. It seemed a good time to echo that,” he said.

In the first four months of this year, he taught 11 day courses. “One was quiet, but at the rest we had to turn people away. It was a step into the unknown, but the response has been pretty good. I get very excited about Latin, so I’m not surprised others do too.”
