Welcome to the Online resources page for CL 202.

What follows is a list of the better web-based resources for Vergil and Latin poetry in general. Check back every now and then, as new sites may be added.



Vergil's Home Page is perhaps the best Vergilian resource on the web. Part of the Vergil project at the University of Pennsylvania, it features links to images, texts, bibliographies, and discussion groups. (Warning: the site is infrequently updated.)


Text and commentary on the Aeneid are available through the Perseus Project, the premiere website of classical studies. The text is linked to useful notes, and there are also links to online dictionaries.


Encyclopedia Mythica. A searchable database of mythical personae, mostly text but with some images. If you need fast background information on a character in our readings, this is your first stop. The author of the site is Mr. Micha F. Lindemans of the Netherlands, who works with various contributors on the articles.

The Mythmedia Project is a collection of images by Ora Zehavi and Dr. Sonia Klinger, from the resources of the University of Haifa Library in Israel.

Hexametrica. A series of pages (with sound files) that introduce the meter of the Aeneid and other epic poems. Written by Prof. Dan Curley of Skidmore College, the site is online but is under construction.
