The Aeneid is one of my favorite things to teach. Vergil is an amazing author, even if he is hard to read in the original Latin. But it's so worth reading in Latin. So I created a tool to help students and scholars of Latin read the Aeneid and learn about its amazing ideas and themes. Check it out at Aeneid.co, register an account, and start poking around. There's a 10 day trial, after which all you need to do is buy me a cup of coffee each month to keep using the site. Please consider registering and explore the Aeneid and the founding of the Roman people.

Conditions are if-then statements, and Latin has a very concrete set of regular conditions, both those that are likely to happen (using the indicative mood) and those that are more of a hypothetical nature (using the subjunctive mood). This video explores the six major real and unreal conditions.
