Latinist or Hellenist?


Recommended Posts

By the terms of the standard divide, I am a Latinist: my focus is Roman, and I have simply read far more Latin than Greek at this point. I can't say that I really identify as a Latinist, though. I think of myself as a Roman Historian, a job that surely requires both Latin and Greek. Trying to not be wholly pigeonholed into one or the other seems to be one of the potential challenges of being a historian in a Classics department.
