Classical (Greek and Latin)


  • The Online Critical Pseudepigrapha project. Electronic editions of the best critical texts of the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha and related literature. All texts are encoded in XML (not TEI-compliant). The following are critical editions (i.e. have an in-line apparatus criticus): Enoch (introduction, text; editors: Pierpaolo Bertalotto, with Ian W. Scott and Ken M. Penner); Testament of Adam (introduction, text; editors: David M. Miller and Ian W. Scott); 2 Baruch (introduction, text; editors: Daniel M. Gurtner, with David M. Miller and Ian W. Scott); The Testament of Job (introduction, text; editor: Ian Scott).
  • Digital Nestle-Aland Prototype (Universität Münster). A real digital critical edition of the first and second Epistle of John, based on a complete digital transcription of 24 manuscripts. The New Testament Transcripts Prototype, cured by the same University, features a digital critical edition of the whole New Testament, but based on a number of manusripts variable from 2 to 26.



Links to other sitographies

A larger commented sitography (in Italian) on digital philology can be found in the 'E-Philology' section of the Digital Variants site (editor: Cinzia Pusceddu). Almost all the projects quoted here belong to medieval or modern philology. A comment on C. Pusceddu's sitography, with a focus on the Classics (in Italian, again) is here.

Greta Franzini published a fairly extensive catalogue of digital editions (not only critical, not only classical).

The catalogue published by Patrick Sahle focusses more specifically on scholarly digital editions (not only classical).
