*CAVEAT EMPTOR* *CAVEAT EMPTOR* - NO TAGS
Again, with Accordance it is best to have low expectations when buying, well, nearly anything of critical value - trust me, it will make the irritation easier to handle when you realize what you spent your student budget money on something you could get for free.

CAVEAT EMPTOR (since this expensive package DOES NOT tag text - I will translate for you: "BUYER BEWARE"). The texts in this collections, though outrageously priced, are mostly/entirely without tags. So, you are paying for very, very basic and lousy texts (i.e. no perks - no basic apparatus, no tags, no table of contents, or really anything that makes this better than a free pdf that you can download from google). These texts are free online, and you could just add them into a module you create....thanks Accordance - not only is my grad school book budget hard to handle, so is your software - which usually lacks any discount, and is always about half as good as advertised.

CAVEAT EMPTOR!!!!! (Buyer beware!)

Just so that everyone is aware of what they are buying: there are very large sections missing from these texts. I am hoping, with no small irritation, that the reason is that some of the fragments (e.g. parts of Irenaeus) exist only in an old latin version.....So, hey, why bother with that it's only, only, and I do mean only, a GREEK module.

Just be aware that if you are actually working from these texts, and, say, reading ...

Just be aware that if you are actually working from these texts, and, say, reading them for class, then you will need to supplement it with the ANF or Ancient Christian Writers text in order to actually make sense of the text

e.g. Irenaeus, Against Her, bk 3, ch 18 only has two small paragraphs that are bracketed by ellipses; but most translations actually include passages 1-7 in toto.....definitely not as helpful as I was hoping - and good luck if you are wanting much latin help from accordance (hope that is remedied soon!).....spend your money on a better module
