Few people speak Latin; even fewer speak ancient Greek. Why do we study these languages here at The Heights? Why do we require our students to study Latin? Is it out of a quaint fascination with the old and the ancient? Or, are there both practical and noble, servile and liberal, reasons to study not only the languages of the ancients but their texts as well?
