This would be very handy, especially in Verbum, but also more generally. Say I'm looking for early primary sources on "The New Eve" --- though I'm sure I'll get plenty of results regarding Iraneus, it would be nice to have Iraneus (or Justin Martyr) first. 

This is especially handy in a "Church Documents" search, &c.

---- 

Similarly, as dates are already tagged in many resources --- though they only go to the timeline for now --- it should also be possible to sort by the date referenced. Say a reference work says St. Polycarp wrote such and such in such-a-year. It would be very nice to have this secondary reference listed before very late references several hundred years later. 

----

If this is possible, it should not be much more difficult to limit the results to a date range, to toggle whether to have primary or secondary references only, and to reverse the results to show the more recent ones first.

Very nice suggestion - well thought out Yes. I hope it gets strong support from the community especially, the Jewish, Orthodox, Catholic and Noet components.

So I have been made aware elsewhere. Yeah --- Embarrassed

(FWIW: I didn't look at the picture closely, and "MJ" immediately made me think of the King of Pop.)

Awww, I never saw the money he did but it's a nice thought. I could get ALL the Logos resources I want.
