Perhaps I am asking for a monumental work but I would like to see the work of Pliny the Elder, Natural History as a module in Accordance. I think it could be of great benefit.

 

Today while studying 1Tim. 5:23, ZIBBCNT made reference to Pliny the Elder in the volume Natural History, Book 14, Chapter 9. I was able to go to Perseus website and read the text about the nature of wine at Ephesus, "while that of Ephesus is far from wholesome, being seasoned with sea-water and defrutum."

It is indeed quite helpful to have everything written in the period 200 BC - AD 200 for NT studies, historical background. I have wished there were a library for ancient studies which had its books shelved in chronological order. Imagine, Accordance or Logos with all the works written 200 BC - AD 200, & having a library section set up where those books were listed from top to bottom in chronological order. I think this should be a feature request.

Hi Enoch

 

It already exists - sort of. The Loeb classical Library has many, if not all the Greco-Roman classics from 800 B.C.E to 1000 C.E, fully searchable too.

 

Link: https://www.loebclassics.com

 

But I do agree that it would be very cool, if Accordance could tap into these kind of resources in the same manner.

 

With kind regards

But I never saw them arranged in a library (with the other works non-Loeb) in chronological order, nor tagged that way in Logos, which has them, of which I have bought all they have. You can search all their Greek corpus, including Perseus, but I don't know that the data can be made to come out in chronological order.

You know, that IS strange, now that I think about it. I don't see why they can't do all of this. Oh well..
