Not really, there are variations both historically/geographically and

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_spelling_and_pronunciation is
quite interesting and mentions e.g.

"Since around the beginning of the Renaissance period onwards, with
the language being used as an international language among
intellectuals, pronunciation of Latin in Europe came to be dominated
by the phonology of local languages, resulting in a variety of
different pronunciation systems." or "Because of the central position
of Rome within the Catholic Church, an Italian pronunciation of Latin
became commonly accepted,"

So for Latin we'd have to agree on one specific pronounciation again.
