Last week I found a clean, well-lighted place to browse the Patrologia Graeca. Lots of sites have dumps of the PG in various states of disarray. But this one is alphabetized by author and then by work. (I’ve used it twice today!)

But what about the Patrologia Latina? Again, you’ll find lots of dumps that are impossible to browse. But, at last, Hermeneutic of Continuity leads us to well-ordered online libraries of the PL: here and here.

Thanks to Father Brian for pointing out these sites.

It’s a great time to be a nerd.

  1. […] The Migne edition of the church fathers is a renowned older version of the church fathers in the languages. Because of age, many of the volumes are in the public domain and can be found on-line. You can find a nicely ordered index of Migne’s Patrologia Graeca, and, if Latin fathers better suit your interest, you can find a helpful index of them as well. (HT: Aquilina) […]

  2. Now if someone would just invent an internet translation device superior to babel fish.

  3. There’s another clean, safe place to browse the Patrologia Graeca… a newly available electronic format from Logos Bible Software.

    Not only is it well-organized and searchable, but it also contains encoded links to Philip Schaff’s Early Church Fathers.

    And if there’s enough interest, Logos will do the Patrologia Latina as well.

    Thought you might like to know!
