Library of Latin Texts (LLT-A)

A major database for Latin texts, the LLT-A (formerly the CLCLT) contains texts from the beginning of Latin literature (Livius Andronicus, 240 BCE) through to the texts of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). It contains over 60 million Latin words drawn from more than 3100 works that are attributed to about 950 authors. It covers all the works from the classical period (texts come from the /Bibliotheca scriptorium Romanorum Teubneriana/Bibliotheca Teubneriana Latina I )/, the most important patristic works as well as non-Christian literature from ca. 200 C.E to 735; an extensive corpus of medieval literature from 735 to 1500 (taken from the /Corpus Christianorum/); and Neo-Latin literature (1501-1965), including 16th century translations into Latin of important medieval works.Currently containing over 2 million words, additions will continue to be made.
