Barry, do you have any particular Philo passages in mind here? He's on my Greek to read list, but I haven't gotten to him yet.
I've done a small amount of reading on this topic over the years and find it fascinating, particularly as I'm translating John.

I agree with using Septuagint that way. Just like I'm fine with using the term "Jerome's Vulgate" even though I'm aware he did not produce all of it--there were portions of the previous Old Latin he didn't revise, etc. We all know what is meant in such cases. And if we don't, we can ask for clarific...

It could be that I didn't spend enough time looking at the available options and wrongly concluded that the interlinears were the only original language Bibles offered. I'll look into it further now...
Does anybody know if this module and the Duke Papyri set mentioned recently work with the free version of Logos? My budget doesn't permit me to get the full version.

And I expect that the literary accent didn't get ...

Ben, this looks really promising! I have a couple of questions about the authors you searched. First, what οr who is JDT? Second, which works of Eusebius did you search? In a sample search for "attempt", I saw citations starting with numbers for Eusebius, e.g., "4Eusebius", "5Eusebius". And also, is...
