What is the difference between epistulas and litteras?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Moopish

epistula is a letter as in post, mail, etc.

littera is a letter as in 'a', b', 'c', etc. In the plural it can mean several things, literature, a letter (post, mail), general writing of sorts, much more than what epistula can mean.
