In beginning my MPh thesis on Saint Anselm of Canterbury, I am finding that I have to go elsewhere other than Logos/Verbum to do my research. I was expecting more from Logos, but am finding a major gap in its theology and philosophy (granted, we knew that the gap in philosophy would be there--it comes with the territory...). To FL's credit, though, I have noticed St. Aelred coming through the PrePub pipeline. I would argue that St. Anselm would fly off the digital shelves much faster, with his much broader academic appeal in different disciplines (Christology, ontology, faith and reason, medieval Christianity, etc.).

So I filtered through my bibliography and put together a much shorter list for FL to peruse of probably the most important and most acquirable texts in the subject. Kindly go to UserVoiceSuggestionsThing and vote it up! Or don't, I don't suppose it's everyone's cup of tea.

https://suggestbooks.uservoice.com/forums/308269-book-suggestions/suggestions/44089713-anything-about-st-anselm-of-canterbury-or-the-ont

This covers just what is needed for a student to get started doing research on St Anselm or the ontological argument from its most reputable and persistent sources. Obviously, the rabbit hole goes much, much deeper than this... don't even get me started on the journals FL should acquire for its Massive Journal Bundle thing...

Faithlife may miss your suggestion, though, since Uservoice is no longer supported. The current platform would be here: https://feedback.faithlife.com/boards/logos-book-requests 

Running Logos 9 latest (beta) version on Win 10
