    [quote user="Paul Maxwell"]The problem is that, while institutions and guidelines might make provisions for this kind of thing (1) most journals take exception to this, and will not allow an inordinate amount of ambiguous citations due to their electronic format,[/quote] I can understand that--though I'd say the problem is more on the journal's side

    [quote user="Mike S."]Buying it at $900 only tells Logos how to price this genre of collection in the future as well. Not something I want to encourage even for a "must-have" resource...[/quote] Pricing doesn't work like that.

    Both editions are quite useful. Swete's is a diplomatic text that provides the text of a single running manuscript, while Rahlfs is a (semi-)critical text based on a number of manuscripts.

Ever heard of the Syntactic Concordance of the Greek New Testament ? He hasn't actually published a commentary for nearly 22 years and he's scheduled for four more...will they come? Who knows

  • Google Translate...

    It would awesome if it were possible to connect to Google translate with non-English modern languages the way we can look up Greek words on Perseus. The Latin capabilities of Google Translate aren't quite as reliable, but I've been impressed with their German, French, and Dutch abilities. And since the URLs are pretty transparent, so it wouldn't be

But when the list price is $2945, it's not as bad as it looks! $900 / 16,798 pages = $0.05 per page. $900 / 26 volumes = $34.62 (averaging roughly 650 pages per volume) All in it could be a lot worse... 650 page books don't normally sell for $35, particularly when they're from academic

    Well, the Perseus Gellius doesn't seem to have the versification built in to the resource, but you can navigate to it by opening up Gellius' works (Attic Nights) and going to book 10, part 3, section 7. Worse the English text doesn't have the last set of numbers, but it looks like this is the paragraph you want: Now these words about so lawless and

    I just realized I have the collection rules in Logos even though everything I wrote in preparation for the release is currently inaccessible. I made rules for a couple of them (the others, I dragged and dropped), including what you're most interested in (the time of the NT): All Greek texts (this is edited specifically for searching, so duplicate Greek
