I am a legally blind user of Logos 8 in need of ‘searching’ assistance.  I am attempting to find examples of ‘Good Works’ (evidence of Christians putting feet to their faith)  in the Patristic Period (100 AD to 500 AD), Medieval Period (500 AD to 1500 AD, and Reformation and Post-Reformation Period till today (1500 AD till today).

Welcome Clifton! Smile

If there is a good way to search for this in Logos, I am sure you will get some help from the more technical users. I don't think there is a great way to do so, however. Searches can be based on linguistics or on tags. Faithlife has certainly not gone though every book and said, "oh look, another example of good works!" Let's add a tag! 

Faithlife does have some tags based upon dates, but that isn't going to be of big help, I wouldn't think.

In terms of linguistics (which is where others will have to chime in), any search is going to be dependent upon the words YOU choose to add to the search. I would think there would be many false positives. 

Your best bet, in my opinion, would be to scour biographies. If you are lucky, there will be a single book which has done the work for you, but I do not know of such a resource.

Factbook offers suggestions when you enter works, including 'good works'. It may be useful...
