Greek texts relevant to the history of the Christian Church from its beginnings through the Council of Florence in 1439.

Patrologia Latina

Texts of Latin Church Fathers from Tertullian (200 CE) to the death of Pope Innocent III in 1216. All prefatory material is included as well as the critical apparatus and indexes.Five large textbases produced by Chadwyck-Healey are available to Princeton users from both the Chadwyck-Healey LION service and the SSP service at the University of Michigan. You may find that you get better results if you use LION to search some textbases and the SSP to search others. If one service is not working, try the other. Feel free to try the same search in both services and to send your comments by e-mail to LION and the SSP.Bear in mind that LION offers many more resources than SSP and that only LION currently supports cross-textbase searching. If you want to search all LION textbases to which Princeton subscribes, or a subset of them, you should use the LION Search texts page. A list of LION textbases to which Princeton subscribes is also available.English Verse Drama DatabaseLION ServiceSSP Service
