Apostolic Fathers

Edited by James Tauber and Seumas Macdonald

The Perseus Digital Library / Open Greek and Latin Project text of Lake is currently being compared with the text in CCEL and in Logos to identify discrepancies. These are then being manually checked (twice independently) against the printed Lake to produce a new, corrected text of the Apostolic Fathers based on Lake.

See for details of the process.

Lemmatisation and morphological analysis will follow.
