Perseus Project Texts available in Logos

Postby MAubrey » August 13th, 2011, 1:50 am

This is cross-posted from my blog (I didn't fee like trying to come up with something new to type...)

I’ve known about this one for a long time. It’s been in the works since before I quit working for Logos back in April. But it’s here now and its awesome.

All of the Greek and Latin texts available from Perseus are now also going to be available offline in Logos Bible Software. And that includes the Duke Data Bank Papyri, the grammars, lexicons, commentaries, everything.

You can read all about the details here:

3000+ Free Perseus Books for Logos 4

This is an incredible event and provides numerous resources that thus far have only been accessible with an internet connection. And they’re still free. I’d suggest reserving your place in line ASAP.

Is there a link you can post for this Logos 4 resource? It did not appear in the reference you made to

They're there...though the links didn't carry over from the post when I copied and pasted. I've added them in.

Perseus Classics Collection (1,114 vols.) http://www.logos.com/product/9940
Perseus Arabic Collection (37 vols.) http://www.logos.com/product/9941
Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri (257 vols.) http://www.logos.com/product/9945
Perseus Renaissance Collection (22 vols.) http://www.logos.com/product/9943
Perseus Civil War and 19th-Century American Collection (340 vols.) http://www.logos.com/product/9942
Beowulf http://www.logos.com/product/9944
Richmond Times-Dispatch (1,355 vols.) http://www.logos.com/product/9946

Also, it has since been pointed out to me that neither Smyth or LSJ are included here. So I retract my "everything" statement. I'm going to assume that this is because Logos already sells the full version of LSJ with the 1996 supplement included and because Smyth is already on pre-pub (and since it's well past 70%, probably in production too):

I imagine Smyth and LSJ were omitted because these are things Logos sells, and the Perseus texts are all free.
