This compact handbook is aimed at all who would like to be able to read Latin epitaphs in churches and elsewhere, but whose knowledge of the language may be sketchy. It reproduces fifty-two church memorials in Latin. Each memorial is accompanied by a translation and by notes on the grammar. Every attempt is made to help the reader understand the context in which each inscription was composed, and to equip the reader with the tools and confidence to tackle other epitaphs beyond the pages of his book and further afield.
