Patrologia Latina Database (Chadwyck-Healey version)

Alternative Titles
Patrologia Latina Database (DLPS version)
Description

Contains 221 volumes of early Christian (patristic) writings in their original Latin. Represents a complete electronic version of the first edition of Jacques-Paul Migne's Patrologia Latina (1844-1855 and 1862-1865). The Patrologia is divided into the Patrologia Latina and the Patrologia Graeco-Latina. The Patrologia Latina covers the works of the Latin Fathers from Tertullian around 200 AD to the death of Pope Innocent III in 1216. In 221 volumes it covers most major and minor Latin authors, and contains the most influential works of late ancient and early medieval theology, philosophy, history and literature. The Patrologia Latina Database is the full-text electronic version of the Patrologia Latina, including all prefatory material, original texts, critical apparatus, indexes and illustrations. The Patrologia Latina Database has made an enormous difference to the work of scholars of patristics, theology, medieval history and Latin. In many other disciplines in the humanities, from philosophy and medieval languages to the history of art and the history of medicine, it is making a significant contribution to research. No other full-text database in the humanities serves so many disciplines in so many ways.
