Robert Kowalski


Dr Robert Kowalski is a Scholar of Classics with extensive teaching experience.

He has been teaching Latin, Classical Greek and Philosophy since 1984 at various educational providers including St Patrick’s College, Barker College, North Sydney Boys High School, The Scots College, and CCE at the University of Sydney. He was also the Head of Classics at the St Thomas Aquinas College.

Robert studied at the University of A. Mickiewicz in Posen, Adelaide University and at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome. He completed both his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Latin and Greek, as well as a Doctorate in Philosophy, Classical Studies and Culture. Additionally, he has worked for the Australian Government as a translator and a simultaneous interpreter covering four modern languages.

Robert has a lifelong passion for classical languages and their application to the contemporary world. He is of the opinion that we should promote the study of classical languages on an equal basis with other subjects in pursuit of the liberal arts which make a valuable contribution to the humanisation of mankind.

Robert has also written a number of articles on classical culture, classical texts and grammar analysis, as well as his most recent book on Latin Syntax.
