An article by Jerome Moran entitled 'Spoken Latin in the Late Middle Ages and Renaissance' was published in the Journal of Classics Teaching in the autumn of 2019 (Moran, 2019). The author of the article contends that 'actual real-life conversations in Latin about everyday matters' never, or almost never took place among educated people in the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. A long-standing familiarity with quite a few primary sources for the Latin culture of Renaissance and early modern period leads us to a rather different conclusion. The present essay, therefore, revisits the main topics treated by Moran.
