Carla Schodde is a Classics student doing her Honours thesis at the University of Melbourne, Australia.

She finds it strange to be writing in the third person, but she’ll roll with it.

She made this blog to give her two cents on Greek and Roman, medieval and ancient Christian themed topics.

She loves everything Roman.

She approaches theology from a Classicist’s perspective, and finds it very rewarding.

She goes to an Anglican church in the city which assembles in a movie theatre every Sunday, and she hangs out with a small study group every Wednesday.

  1. Hi, a very good blog, yours, and it seems we share similar interests. I didn’t reply to your intriguing comment on the ‘decline’ of the empire because I blog very little now and am mostly into music at present. But I always thought I would have replied to you, sooner or later. Keep up the good work!

    • Thank you! I’m glad to hear you liked my blog. Your post about the ‘fall’ of Rome was really thought provoking, and I hoped I could add something on top of the many other very interesting responses.

  2. Very unique blog. I happen to be a fan of historical Christianity. I plan on being back to muse upon your cogitation. 🙂

  3. This is such a good response to the myth of ancient Romans being able to draw in perspective. Linear perspective is a complex method of realist representation. We have Brunelleschi’s history and method, along with verification of his fellow artists (notably Uccello) and centuries of expansion and polish to prove there is a standard for true linear perspective.

    Thanks so much for this article. It clarifies and exposes wrong-thinking in art/architecture.

  5. Hello,

    I am a beginner in Latin, having studied Hebrew and Arabic. I have a fairly superficial question. I noticed from the offerings in the Harvard Loeb Classical Library that there are so many more titles in Greek than in Latin. That gave me the impression that there is not a whole lot of Latin to be read. Is there any historical reason for the overwhelming availability of Greek titles compared with Latin? Thanks so much.
