Are all of the Popular Patristics titles part of the pre-built ECF collection in Verbum? (I can see reasons why they might not all be.)

If not, can someone confirm for me which ones are not in it? I have some tagging to do...

(I have the same essential question regarding the Fathers of the Church series put out by CUA, but my assumption would be that they all are.)

I do a search on a word like "the" on the Verbum Church Fathers when I want to verify what is in the collection. That doesn't work for resources you don't own but ...

Ah! Smart. I will do that.

Fortunately, at the moment I'm only concerned about the ones I own.

Silly me. The Library lets us filter by Collection now, and the pre-built collections are filterable.

Alas, there are omissions from the pre-built ECF collection that desperately need to be corrected:

Most of Popular Patristics, the fourth volume of the four by Severus of Antioch, Four Desert Fathers: Pambo, Evagrius, Macarius of Egypt, and Macarius of Alexandria: Coptic Texts Relating to the Lausiac History of PalladiusThe Lausiac History of Palladius (which incorrectly fails to list Palladius as the author), and the Augustine for the 21st Century series all need to be added. I expect I've missed other volumes/series, too.

I also find it a tad odd that St. Bonaventure, (some) St. Bernard, and (St.) Gregory Palamas are in it. It is also odd to me that the Catena Aurea is the only patristic catena contained in it; if you're going to have one, why not the others?

One of the side effects of employee turnover ... usually if it is brought to their attention, it gets corrected quickly.

That's why I posted. Smile
