Library of Latin Texts - Series B

Library of Latin Texts - Series B (LLT-B)

Brepolis
Description

Supplement to LLT-A. With an initial production of almost 7 million words and a projected growth of 4-5 million words annually, the LLT-B will develop at a faster pace than the LLT-A. In order to make this possible, the material which makes up the LLT-B is taken directly from existing editions (whereas the LLT-A is the product of intensive research work). The Library of Latin Texts – Series B gathers Latin texts of all genres and all periods. The data will therefore be very diverse, and will include genres as varied as chronicles, medieval saints’ lives and travel narratives, legal texts, and theological, philosophical and scientific treatises from the early-modern period. Above all, the emphasis will be on the online availability of large corpora of texts.
