Description:The Library of Latin Texts - Series A is a large database for Latin texts. In total, the present version of the LLT-A contains over 63 million Latin words, drawn from more than 3,200 works that are attributed to approximately 950 authors. The texts which are incorporated are selected by virtue of their having been edited according to best contemporary scholarly practice. Independent research is undertaken to verify facts relating to the text, such as the veracity of the authorial attribution or the dating. In addition, errors in word-forms from the printed version are corrected.
The Library of Latin Texts - Series B gathers Latin texts of all genres and all periods. The data are therefore very diverse, and include genres as varied as chronicles, medieval saints’ lives and travel narratives, legal texts, and theological, philosophical and scientific treatises from the earlymodern period.

Details:The Library of Latin Texts - Series A is a project that was started in 1991 as the Cetedoc Library of Christian Latin Texts, hence its common abbreviation ‘CLCLT’. Its purpose was to produce a database comprising the entirety of Christian Latin literature. The new name that was adopted in 2002 refers to the expansion of the chronological limits that were originally set.
