Hi all
I would like to hear if anyone knows whether the Greek text of Eusebius Church History has been scanned and is online anywhere.
Not at Perseus, I am afraid.
Thanks
Morten

Michael has pointed you to the best spot to check. I've accumulated a few other links to ways to find stuff in Patrologiae Cursus Completus, Series Graeca at this blog posting (http://bibleandtech.blogspot.com/2007/08/mignes-patrologiae-cursus-completus.html).

Fantastic! Migne online, thanks.

Now, just one thing: are there any ways you can do refined searches in acrobat or are you limited to simple word searches by copying a word in the text and search for that one?

Thanks!

Note that this is now available for BibleWorks as a free download, as posted on the BibleWorks blog (http://bibleworks.oldinthenew.org/?p=1038).

Thanks! Let us know when you get the Praeparatio Evangelica done too! :rolleyes:

My advice is to practice your motivational speeches in French, since the person who contacted me about those other Eusebius works speaks French natively (though his English is quite good). :)

Michael,

Have you made a list anywhere of old modules that we made for earlier versions of BW that have since been incorporated into the BW main package?

The reason I ask, I had a folder with so many modules in it, going to back to the earliest days of that capability, that it was so big I finally deleted it since it can all be obtained on your blog.

Obviously, however, I don't want to put modules in that were created years ago that are now included in BW, such as ECF, as an extremem example.

If you haven't already done so -- and I know you're very busy -- but it wouldn't hurt from time to time, say a couple minutes a day, to go through your blog and put some kind of indicatro that such-and-such has been superseded by includion in BW, or what-have-you. I'd offer to pay you, but... :cool:

As you can tell by some of the latest releases, I don't really have much spare time to do this, but since you see the need, by all means go for it and I can post something :D

The closest thing to what you want is something Mark Hoffman has been doing, which you can get here (http://bibleandtech.blogspot.com/2011/09/i-have-completed-updated-listings-of.html). The biggest things that I know of that have been included in BibleWorks are the Apostolic Fathers and Tregelles. There are probably others, but I can't keep track of everything.

That's a pretty impressive piece of work, Mark. And I think that will be a good tool to use to determine what's on the blog that doesn't come with BW.

It's a shame that Michael is too lazy to put all that together for us! :p

Actually, Michael, the blog is an exceptional resource in and of itself. Thanks for maintaining it.

I keep telling Jim that he needs to get some of the student workers going on some BibleWorks projects, but for some reason the library has some problems with that. :cool:

This is really cool, thanks!

I've tried downloading other additional files and come across these directions on the blog:

"To install the files, download the archive and unzip the files to your /BibleWorks 9/databases folder. If you want the book name to display properly in your browse window, then you will need to append the following line to your default bookname file (typically books.bna in your /BibleWorks 9/init folder ..."

For Eusebius text, do we need to append a line to the bookname file?

If so, how does one do this? Do we need to download a special text editing program to edit this *.bna file?

Thanks!

You don't need to, but you'll probably have a better overall experience. The .bna file is a simple text format, so you can open it with a program like Notepad or Wordpad on Windows. See this blog post (http://bibleworks.oldinthenew.org/?p=1093) for a bit more detail.
