Latin does not generally take an article, when referring to the Latin language. However, in the past (such as during the 19th century) this was common (e.g. “To what language does lingua belong?”, answered by “The Latin.”), and in some contexts is still used (“I read the text in the Latin [language edition].”). This mirrors French use, where the name of the language does take the definite article, as in je parle le latin ("I speak Latin").
