Description

The Open Greek and Latin project" is one of the efforts of the Open Philology Project of the Humboldt Chair of Digital Humanities at the University of Leipzig. Its ultimate goal is to represent every source text produced in Classical Greek or Latin from antiquity through the present, including texts preserved in manuscript tradition as well as on inscriptions, papyri, ostraca and other written artifacts. Over the course of the next five years, it will focus upon converting as much Greek and Latin, available as scanned printed books, into an open, dynamic corpus, continuously augmented and improved by a combination of automated processes and human contributions of many kinds.

As of April 2013, the Open Greek and Latin project closely collaborates with the Perseus Digital Library.
