Professor Christian Wildberg of the
Classics Department leads a new look at classical
inscriptions on the campus. In 1938, the Princeton Alumni
Weekly published an article by Professor Shirley Weber. The
article was entitled, “An Exercise in Epigraphy: Classical
Inscriptions on the Campus.” In that article, Professor Weber
had collected and translated Latin and Greek inscriptions
and traced their history and meaning.
For this courseware, the inscriptions were photographed,
translated, and referenced for your use on this website. Going
beyond Weber’s article, further information about the inscriptions
and the buildings they decorate has been included.
The lectureware is FREE to alumni, and requires the latest
Flash Player. It comprises about one hour of images,
animations, video, and text, subdivided into many segments,
so participants may proceed at their own pace.
If you have a high-speed connection, such
as DSL or Cable Modem, you may take the course directly over
the Internet by clicking the Attend button.
Otherwise you may order the stand-alone CD-ROM by clicking
on the Order CD.
NOTE: Parents and immediate relatives of
students and alumni are encouraged to participate but must
