This anthology presents a variety of texts in Latin, relevant for art history. It is useful for anyone who wants to activate their knowledge of Latin grammar on texts which have not been simplified for language instruction, but which are authentic, thus featuring a variety of spelling inconsistencies, abbreviations and language peculiarities pertaining to the genres and period of origin. The book contains Biblical texts, chronicles and biographical texts, including legends, various Latin inscriptions from Prague and other places around the Czech Republic, texts written by ancient and Renaissance authors on fine arts, texts on objects of artistic work, texts on music, liturgical texts, Latin texts written by editors of old texts as well as sources on church property in Bohemia, including excerpts from the foundation charter of the Chapter of Litoměřice.
