The Calvin classics department invites you to Biduum Latinum Calvinianum, a two-day conference in spoken Latin. Our theme this year is "travels and travelers," and all levels are welcome.

Join Patrick Owens, David Noe of Calvin University, and Jeff Winkle of Grand Rapids Community College for Latin discussion in a relaxed environment.

This conference is designed for Latin students at all levels, especially those in secondary schools and colleges. Some knowledge of written Latin is helpful, but beginners are welcome. Speakers will be matched by experience level.
