All our classes are scheduled at UK/Ireland local time, which at the moment is GMT. We will be moving to GMT+1 in the early hours of Sunday 26th March. For current students in North America where Daylight Savings Time began today, this means that for the next two weeks, your classes will be one hour later.
This week, I'm looking forward to reading the Homeric Centos by Aelia Eudocia Augusta, wife of Emperor Theodosius II. A Cento is a poem composed of lines and verses from other authors. Eudocia's poem is 2,344 lines in length, and begins with Iliad 17.220 followed by Odyssey 8.222, and telling the story of Jesus Christ.
