Im digitizing the Apophthegmata Patrum

Post by mahasacham » April 10th, 2016, 7:06 pm

I am currently digitizing the Apophthegmata Patrum (Gerontikon) in Greek. I wanted to let everyone know in case someone happens to be doing the same. When I am done, I hope to set up a blog dedicated to the study of this composition.
I hope to have this digitized in a few months. I am using the Git Hub OCR repository for the Patrologia Graecum which is making things less tedious (Tome 65). Also a great help is the open source Libre Office Ancient Greek spell check extension and tool set.
I'm currently a little over a third of the way done (στοιχεῖον Ἄλφα ἤδη ἐτελεύτησα).

Thanks! It's nice to have the Desert Fathers in Greek.
