LLT - Library of Latin Texts (DVD and online)

Overview  |  Publications  |  In preparation  |  Guidelines

LLT is the world's leading database for Latin texts. It contains texts from the beginning of Latin literature (Livius Andronicus, 240 BC) through to the texts of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). It covers all the works from the classical period, the most important patristic works, a very extensive corpus of Medieval Latin literature as well as works of recentior latinitatis. The complete works of writers such as Cicero, Virgil, Augustine, Jerome, Gregory the Great, Anselm of Canterbury, Bernard of Clairvaux and Thomas Kempis can thus be consulted. The texts have been taken from Corpus Christianorum series and from many other leading editions.

Each search-query shows the results in the context of a sentence, but from here the user can consult the whole text of the work.

Each work has been the subject of historical and philological examination and is accompanied by a didactical 'memento', which supplies chronological, bibliographical, critical and statistical information. All relevant Clavis Patrum Latinorum entries have been fully integrated.

In total, LLT contains over 60 million Latin words.
