Année philologique

Provides an index to materials in the field of Classical Studies covering especially topics in Greco-Roman history and civilization, archaeology, language and literature. Since June 2009 this database, the electronic version of the print index L'Annee Philologique, has extended its coverage of scholarly publications back to 1924, when the print index was first offered. All years are searchable by the following: modern authors, full text (not full text of the articles but full text of the index!), and ancient authors and texts. For subjects and disciplines there are two options: one for those articles appearing prior to volume 67 and one for those articles appearing after volume 67. Coverage typically lags two years behind publication. Entries for journal articles usually have an abstract and the abstract is usually in the language of the article. By moving the cursor on a journal title abbreviation, the full title of the journal will be displayed. Tip: do not click on the abbreviation; the display of the full title may take a second or two. For books, book reviews are indicated using standard abbreviations for the journal that contains the review. Société internationale de bibliographie classique

Patrologiae cursus completus. Series Graeca

Provides full-text access to the printed works of Greek Christian writers down to the Council of Florence (1438- 39). This is a collection of the writings of the church leaders who wrote in Greek, including both the Eastern "Fathers" and those Western Christians who wrote before the Latin takeover of the West in the third century. The texts are generally interlaced with one column of Greek and a corresponding column on the other side of the page that is the Latin translation. Where the Greek has been lost, such as in Irenaeus, the full text appears only in Latin, and the extant Greek fragments of the work are interspersed throughout the Latin text. This is a full- text library of resources rather than a full-text database. Using the “Control” and “F” keys will bring up a rudimentary search engine. But searchability extends no farther than author searching of the HTML links. Scrolling down the entry list is only slightly less efficient. Full text is in JPG format, which makes electronic text capture problematic. Not a challenge for the Greek and Latin literate per se, but those requiring translation apps will have to key in the text themselves. Coverage is from the 2nd century CE to 1438-39 CE.
