The Latinitas Foundation

Of the Vatican, home page in Latine / Latin vel in Anglice / English.

The Latinitas Foundation was established in 1976 by Pope Paul VI with the Pontifical Chirograph Romani sermonis and it has the following objectives:
  1. to promote the study of the Latin language, classical literature and Medieval Latin;
  2. to promote the increased use of the Latin language by publishing texts in Latin and other suitable means.

Among other activities is the promotion of the Lexicon recentis Latinitatis, an Italian-Latin list of words for the modern age. For instance: instrumentum computatorium (computer), radiophonium (radio), pasta vermiculata (spaghetti), and brevissimae bracae femineae (hot pants).
