This text represents the 1891 edition of the Lightfoot Apostolic Fathers, revised by J. R. Harmer. This Accordance edition contains only the Greek texts of the Apostolic Fathers.
It differs from the print text in that it adopts the continuous versification system of Shepherd of Hermas developed by Michael Holmes in his Apostolic Fathers: Greek Texts and English Translations (Baker). This allows for a more ready comparison of the two.
The Holmes edition (AF) is the more complete edition and is now the standard scholarly edition. The Accordance version of the Holmes text includes the entire critical text, Latin sections, along with footnotes, critical apparatus, and English translation.

About This Text:
The Apostolic Fathers
Translated by J.B. Lightfoot.
I've already learned a lot about many of the modules I never took the time to dig into before. A great exercise to help me find something I'm looking for quickly instead of a global search that may or may not return the results I want. For example, I remember that I have the Didache, but cannot remember in what module or tool. Searching this tool shows me I have it in AFL-E and a click takes me directly to that writing. As I start to flesh this out further and personalize it, I'll pull in links to tools as well (e.g. [Anchor, Entry, Didache] ).
Has anyone else gone through this exercise? If so, would you be interested in sharing your work and/or lessons learned?
Would anyone like to join me in working further on this beast of a project? I now have all my texts done, about to start on my tools (233 of them!) and would love to share the work. Anyone interested?
