New Part of the Site: The Texts

Added something tonight that a few of you might be interesting in. There is now a texts section for the site. For now there’s not much. There is chapter one of book of a Hellenistic romance novel by Chariton. This is also the digitized text of Chrysostom’s epistle to the imprisoned bishops which I am working on translating. For the Greek text of both, go here.

What else will go there? Well, two things, but one of them I will wait and tell you later. What I will tell you about now is that this is also where I will be posting reader’s versions of texts. I have almost a dozen started for my own use (all of the Protoevangelium of James, part of Dionysius of Halicarnassus’ Roman Antiquities, Mark 1, part of Pseudo-Apollodorus’ Bibliotheka, and a few others. When they are edited I’ll be putting them up there for public consumption. I will, of course, let you know when that is done.

All texts I digitize and translations I post in this section are released into the public domain. Do with them what you wish, though if you use them elsewhere on the web I would appreciate a link.

This is great. I love what you’re doing and where it seems headed.
