New Product Announcement--->Library of Latin Texts

Library of Latin Texts

One irritating thing is that we need to link to the brepolis home page (because of our license), instead of directly to the Library of Latin Texts. Once you click through from the home page, the link to the LLT is at the bottom of the display, and is not immediately apparent. Give it a try and you'll see what I mean.

CCLT's intention is to work towards a complete database of Latin texts, both Christian and other. The user will find here, beyond the normal addition of patristic and medieval texts (including, it’s worth emphasizing, a number previously unedited), the invaluable inclusion (thanks to our collaboration with Fr. Roberto Busa) of the main works of Thomas Aquinas (the Summa theologiae, Summa contra Gentiles and his commentaries on the Sentences), and neo-Latin classics such as the Institutio christianae religionis of John Calvin and certain Latin works of Descartes (for which we are dependent on the collaboration with the Lessico Intellettuale Europeo in Rome, directed by our friend and colleague, Tullio Gregory).
