  • Re: New Hardware Thoughts

    I am using crap hardware compared with just about anyone. 7th Gen i3 laptop 12 GB (was 6 GB) RAM 1 TB SATA SSD (was HDD) I first went from 6 GB to 12 GB Ram, and while performance was improved, it was still quite sluggish. The SSD, even on the SATA interface was a great step up. Of course M2 would be the better option, but even SATA can bring old hardware

  • Re: Verbum July 2019 Free Book of the Month

    [quote user="Sean"]The CUA series is vastly better than the Schaff collection, and also vastly more expensive.[/quote] True enough. But the CUA series isn't really that expensive compared with many works of more recent theologians. And while IMHO we should certainly study recent works, Augustine is a figure whose influence continues to be significant

    Well - there is "Confessions". That would be one of them. IIRC he also treated the opening of Genesis in some Anti-Pelagian writings, but the exact name of the treatise escapes me at this time.

  • Re: Logos 7 cannot connect to server

    A few days ago I attempted to install using the old Logos 7 installer since I had it already on a network drive of various install files on a new computer. It was unable to connect to the Logos servers to log into my account. When I DLed the Logos 8 installer, it worked fine though. So I can't say exactly what the problem is, I strongly suspect there

  • Re: Essential reference works

    For centuries there has been quite a bit of theological study on various early Christian witnesses in academic theology. Of particular interest to many is Ignatius of Antioch, who left us some letters that he wrote when he was being transported from Antioch to Rome for his expected martyrdom. The textual history of these letters is arguably complex

    I hate to tease, but looking at my source files, it looks like I updated it in 2015 to include these milestones - and links to this milestone in the intro. But as NB mentioned, this actual translation is available now , and I have made the choice to not publicly update any work that now exists in official Logos editions since it just seems wrong to

  • Re: Making Personal Books Appear in 'Guides'

    I am not 100% sure what exactly you are asking. Whenever I have created a Personal Book, the compiler has been pretty good at recognizing Bible references and inserting the appropriate link. Admittedly this functionality is not 100% accurate, and I have often cleaned it up by being specific, but it generally works well at creating a bible reference

  • Re: Who Fascinates you in church history?

    Teresa of Avila - vital for the Counter-Reformation. Catherine Winkworth - Vital for translating Lutheran Chorales into English - and we Lutherans have a love/hate relationship with those translations - they are beautiful poetry, but her Unitarianism does influence those translations at time.

    An example of both Loeb (on Left) and Perseus (on Right) opened to a passage quite early in Plato's Republic. Both have tagging as a destination for the Plato datatype. Both have the surface text and are tagged with lemma forms for each word. Loeb is broken up into more readable paragraphs. Loeb also includes page number tagging. The about panel says

  • Re: Ante Nicene Fathers?

    Looking closer I see a few sets that may interest you. First off, there is the old "Schaff" - although he didn't edit the ante Nicenes... It is actually a decent collection, but it has a few problems. It is dated - unaware of the many textual discoveries since then. Clement gets a bit specific in how he talks about sex, and the Victorian editors decided

  • Re: Ante Nicene Fathers?

    There are lots of different collections of various "fathers". The collection you link is almost certainly the largest collection of ante Nicene writings translated into English. I have not read all of them - or even most of them. But the volumes I have read from that series are quite readable and include some good basic notes to get you started on them

  • Re: Prayer in the Church Fathers - A request for help from Catholic/Orthodox brothers and sisters.

    Like MJ, I was shocked by the Beale quote you posted - and even more shocked to see how well this work has been reviewed online, with a few reviews saying how well he knows the primary sources. What I have learned in trying to seriously engage some of these figures is that while they are almost always using the terminology of various forms of Platonism

  • Re: Time line for "heresies" in the NT

    Just about any Church History text will give evidence for when certain ideas were debated in the early church. But the exact history of when the idea started has been greatly debated since at least Bauer's Orthodoxy and Heresy was written, where he argued that there is evidence that ideas rejected as Heresy later have quite early roots - and were actually

  • Re: Prayer in the Church Fathers - A request for help from Catholic/Orthodox brothers and sisters.

    In just about every field of study a vocabulary develops over time to express the concepts of that field. Almost always this jargon comes from the wider world, but develops certain specific meanings in that field. And much of the study undertaken to become a professional in that field is to learn that specific jargon so that you know what it means

    I am sure that there are people more expert than I, but the stone tablet looks quite odd to me. Usually I see the two tablets divided by "Tables of the Law" with (since I am Lutheran) the first three commandments being on the first tablet on the left, and 4-10 on the 2nd tablet on the right. Of course, this "tradition" may be something that was made
