Aristoteles Latinus Database

Alternative Titles
Aristoteles Latinus Database (ALD)
ALCD
Brepolis
Description

The critical edition of the Medieval Latin Aristotle is one of the main projects supervised and supported by the Union Académique Internationale / International Union of Academies. The most important objective of the project is to bring to scholarly attention the various forms in which Aristotle’s texts came to be read in the West. The Latin versions of these texts constituted the main tools for the study of science and philosophy in the Middle Ages. They were considered as being the canonized littera to which all the commentaries on Aristotle’s works referred. The role played by these translations in the development of the Western philosophical and scientific terminology can thus hardly be overestimated. All the texts that have been critically edited in the series Aristoteles Latinus are now available Online and on CD-Rom together with the texts not yet available in a critical edition.

In the course of the last fifty years twenty-five volumes have already been published in the printed Aristoteles Latinus. They include the entire corpus of Aristotle’s logical works, all the Medieval Greek-Latin translations of the Metaphysics and the Nicomachean Ethics, and several versions of the physical and technical works of the Aristotelian collection. The edition of the remaining parts of the program is in progress. The electronic database offers the complete texts but is not identical to the printed publication as it omits the prefaces describing the manuscript tradition and the apparatus of variant readings. Nor does it include the Greek-Latin comparative apparatus or the bilingual indexes. The critically edited texts themselves, however, have been included with all their peculiarities, such as interlinear notes, and the typographical distinctions that characterise the texts of the revised versions.

The texts included are prepared and supervised by the Aristoteles Latinus Centre of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. The database is produced in collaboration with the Centre ‘Traditio Litterarum Occidentalium’ (CTLO), which is a humanities computing laboratory for the study of Latin texts. This Centre continues former activities in the field of Latin studies at Cetedoc. The aim is to provide the academic world a scholarly product of the highest quality.

The ALD Online is searchable simultaneously with other Brepols full-texts databases (namely the Library of Latin Texts, the Monumenta Germaniae Historica, the Archive of Celtic-Latin Literature).

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

Alternative Titles
Library of Latin Texts - Series A
CETEDOC Library of Christian Latin Texts (CLCLT)
Corpus Christianorum
Bibliotheca scriptorum Romanorum Teubneriana
Brepolis
Description

The Library of Latin Texts – Series A is the world’s leading database for Latin texts. In total, the present version of the LLT-A contains over 63 million Latin words, drawn from more than 3,200 works that are attributed to approximately 950 authors. The texts which are incorporated are selected by virtue of their having been edited according to best contemporary scholarly practice. Independent research is undertaken to verify facts relating to the text, such as the veracity of the authorial attribution or the dating. In addition, errors in word-forms from the printed version are corrected.

Literature from Antiquity: The first chronological part of the database comprises the entire corpus of Latin literature from Classical Antiquity up to the second century A.D. (opera omnia of Plautus, Terence, Caesar, Cicero, Virgil, Horace, Ovid, Titius-Livius, the Senecas, the two Plinys, Tacitus, Quintilian and the others). The texts from this section come essentially from the Bibliotheca scriptorum Romanorum Teubneriana / Bibliotheca Teubneriana Latina 1.

Literature from Patristic Authors: The second chronological part of the database comprises the patristic Latin literature that starts around 200 C.E./A.D. with Tertullian and ends with the death of the Venerable Bede in 735. It offers the complete works of important patristic writers such as Ambrose, Augustine, Ausonius, Cassian, Cyprian, Gregory the Great, Jerome, Marius Victorinus, Novatian, Paulinus of Nola, Prudentius, Tertullian and many rich corpora of authors such as Cassiodorus, Isidore and Bede. It also contains non-Christian literature of that period such as Ammianus Marcellinus, the Scriptores Historiae Augustae, Claudian, Macrobius, or Martianus Capella.

Literature from the Middle Ages (736-1500): The medieval literature in the database comprises Latin literature after 735 and includes a large number of texts up to 1500. This part of the database includes the complete works of many medieval authors such as Anselm of Canterbury, Beatus of Liebana, Bernard of Clairvaux, William of St. Thierry, Sedulius Scottus, Thomas a Kempis, Thomas of Celano. It also includes the Sentences and the Commentaries on the Pauline epistles of Peter Lombard, the Rationale of Guillaume Durand and important works by Abelard, Bonaventure, Ramon Llull, Thomas Aquinas, William of Ockham and so forth. The texts from patristic and medieval sections come essentially from the Corpus Christianorum series.

Neo-Latin Literature (1501-1965): This part of the database already contains over 2 million words and will continue to develop. It includes, for instance, the decrees from the modern ecumenical Church councils up to Vatican II, sixteenth century translations into Latin of important medieval works and works of Lawrence of Brindisi.
