  • Re: Iliad in Greek

    The other Greek texts don't have this problem; and so are fairly user friendly on the IPad. I wish we had a similar text for the Iliad; or could turn off the other elements; or could turn off those elements in Logos 4 and save/sync to iOS.

    I must say, I'm a little surprised that important works like this - not to mention the OLD - are not assumed to be essential to Logos. After all, Logos offers so much and so much that is, shall we say, a bit obscure. This is a good thing. However, important dictionaries/lexicons like this are of use to virtually everyone who uses Logos. To me it's almost

    [quote user="DMB"] It's a greek crowd, with a few hebrew stragglers. I haven't seen any 'latin' folks which is curious, given the richness of the writings of the various groups among the church fathers. I HAVE whined about Logos' library short-comings but I have a hard time arguing with some of these core resources being on CP and very little interest

  • Catholic Scholar's Edition v. Original Languages

    I am trying to decide between the Catholic Scholar edition and the Original Languages collection. I am a reader of classical Greek and trying to move into NT/Koine. I like the Catholic Scholars, especially for the Aquinas resources - esp. the Latin Summa. I do wish it had more resources (and in Latin) from St. Augustine. If I do go with the Catholic

    Outside Scripture? I can have all of this in one "book" so this is my answer as to what "book" I'd bring to a desert island (Chesterton's answer to that proverbial question was: "Thomas' Guide to Practical Shipbuilding.") 1. Saint Thomas Aquinas, everything 2. Saint Augustine, everything 3. Anything by G.K. Chesterton. You simply cannot read him without

    [quote user="David Paul"] [quote user="Mr. Micawber"] In other words, the human brain uses location to recall the words it reads, which helps reinforce the information. To trigger a memory, the brain might recall whether it read the information at the top, middle, or bottom of the page, remember a corresponding picture on the page, or even a page number
