Zefania XML Bible Markup

From The Digital Classicist Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


This is an XML schema for encoding biblical texts and commentaries in multiple languages, including Latin and Ancient Greek. The The Zefania project blog and German Wikipedia have limited background information on the project.

The XML encoded files provided by the project can be converted to other XML schemes (e.g. TEI). Since among the files there is e.g. a morphologically tagged Septuaginta edition, the resource is potentially useful to Classicists, for linguistic research etc.

The documentation on the XML scheme also makes available the xsd schema file.
