e begin Latin in tears, at least I did, with imperial and boring Caesar. The Middle Ages and the Renaissance began Latin with the laughter and the humanity of the freed slave, Terence, Publius Terentius Afer. This website discusses African Terence's importance through time, arguing for his restoration to education's canon. For years I was barred from teaching at the graduate level, at Princeton, at Boulder. During that time, amongst other conferences, I organized one on Terence through Time, working with scholars and the Eden Theatrical Workshop, directed by Lucy Walker in Denver. Finally, because I was willing to take early retirement, as a golden handshake, I was permitted one graduate seminar. I chose to teach it on 'Latin with Laughter: Terence through Time'. This is explained in the essays, 'Global Tapestry ' and 'Slaves and Princes: Terence through Time '. Then for ten more years I was barred from publishing this material. This website includes the essays of that long-ago graduate seminar. It also includes the Latin texts of two of Terence's plays, to be given with medieval and Renaissance miniatures and the exquisite woodblocks from those Renaissance miniatures for teaching the plays to schoolchildren, like Montaigne, like Shakespeare. So our story can end as do the manuscripts of Terence:



Click on http://image.ox.ac.uk, then search for 'Terence Comedies' which will give MS Auct F.2.13, Terence's Comedies, in Latin, with Romanesque drawings comprising the latest version of the Late Antique cycle of scene-illustrations, St. Albans Abbey, mid 12th century. The first of the four artists (fols. 2v-17v) is, the Bodleian Library says, identifiable as 'The Master of the Apocrypha Drawings' in the Winchester Bible. The illustrations for Andria V.1-2 at fol. 28r-v are missing in the Carolingian witnesses.

Terence, Comoediae, Lyon, 1493

Terence's Comedies influenced Hrotswitha's Comedies, influenced the Fleury Liturgical Dramas, influenced Dante 's Commedia, influenced Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, influenced the delightful comic elements in the Wakefield Master's Cycle Plays. It was Terence who gave to Latin a human face, the voice of the slave, the voice of the woman, Christ preaching to publicans and prostitutes, Christianity being the 'religion of women and slaves', and it was Terence's Comedies which were used in medieval monasteries and in Renaissance grammar schools for teaching Latin to men and women both. It was Terence's presence in manuscripts in Benedictine libraries that could allow the voice of Scholastica to be heard in Gregory's text. And it could have been Terence's presence in manuscripts in Benedictine libraries that could allow the voice of Julian of Norwich to be heard in the writing of her own manuscripts, to be treasured in both Brigittine and Benedictine libraries, but not elsewhere.

http://www.caareviews.org/reviews/dodwell.html used to publish a full review of:
C. R. Dodwell, Anglo-Saxon Gestures and the Roman Stage Cambridge Studies in Anglo-Saxon England 28 Cambridge, MA: Cambridge University Press, 2000. 189 pp. 99 b/w ills. $69.95 (cloth) (0521661889)

 The publication of Anglo-Saxon Gestures and the Roman Stage posthumously honors C. R. Dodwell’s lifelong work on early medieval art. Timothy Graham, formerly Dodwell’s research assistant, considerately saw the book through to press. In this volume, Dodwell considers the origins of the illustrations in Carolingian Terence manuscripts and their possible relationship to illuminations produced at Canterbury or under Canterbury’s influence in the eleventh century. Although its deductions are problematic, this study is nonetheless valuable for its systematic analysis of gestures in the manuscripts’ imagery; it will interest not only art historians but also intellectual historians and classicists.
