Who is your favorite contemporary latinist?
Mine is Reginald Foster:
My favorite contemporary Latinists are, or were at some point, members of this forum.
That's not fair.
Yes, those two.
I do hope they return...
Terence Tunberg (Met him, amazing shcolar)
Luigi Miraglia (Took classes from his students)
Father Foster (Wish I met him)
I've heard of those celebrity Latinists and seen a video here and there, but I'm not really following any of them, so I don't have a favorite.
I rather like this guy: http://www.scorpiomartianus.com/
yeah he is good. Used to listen to him on youtube all the time.
He sounds robotic to a lot of people, but most do.
Best to me on you tube is Prince Sterling
His pronunciation is just wonderful. Best I've heard.
I like him too. He is also the first person with whom I ever spoke Latin.
One of my favourite Latinists is Corrado Russo (see here and here) who has recorded several works of Cicero, Livy, Apuleius and other authors in audiobook format, and makes them available for free. Often when walking home from the local train station I listen to one of his recordings.
Thank you so much for those links. I just spent the last 30 minutes downloading material -which will likely be listened to while walking as well.
