I wonder how era is classified?

E.g. I don't understand why this resource https://www.logos.com/product/2190/a-textual-commentary-on-the-greek-new-testament is classified as Modern (1700-1959).

Thanks.

Seem to remember era corresponds to year:

ante-nicene (AD 100-325)

nicene (AD 326-451)

byzantine (AD 452-1054)

medieval (AD 1055-1516)

reformation (AD 1517-1699)

modern (AD 1700-1959)

contemporary (AD 1960-present)

Concur since publication date of 1994 for second edition and 1970 for first edition should be contemporary.

Probably it is a bug. Because it is showing as modern in my end.

Thanks.

In other context one can right click and select "report typo" for problem like this. But in the Passage Guide, there seems to be no way to right click and "report typo". If that is implemented, may be it will be more efficient to report these problems and hence improve the quality of the tagging.

Also, another potential bug report: NTTTC is classified as Exegetical but probably should be Apparatus?

Is there a way to access the commentary grouping tags for collections?

It would be nice to be able to refine searches (especially mobile) to commentaries based on type or era.

Within Passage Guide (or other guides), the Commentaries section provides these as options, but they don't align with resource metadata available to Collections. The Publication Date (pubdate) is close, but will not provide the same era as the Commentaries section e.g. the K&D Old Testament is a revised 1996 publication of a product originally published 1866-1891. era is based on the latter.

Will these changes (sorting commentaries by various criteria; revamping the commentary displayed names) be coming to Logos 9 Mobile soon?
