It’s All Greek — and All Online!

Reader JR alerts us to Migne’s Patrologia Graeca, now entirely available for free downloading!

If you’ve been putting off those Greek lessons, now’s the time to start. I highly recommend William D. Mounce’s Basics of Biblical Greek: Grammar and the accompanying Workbook. I took the extra step of ordering tapes of Professor Mounce’s classes. I found them abundantly helpful. His tapes, CDs, and software (some of it free for downloading) are available from his own family-run business, Teknia.

You’ll find pointers to free Greek-learning resources in this post, from a few months back.

Wow! Nifty on the free PG front, but downloading 40,300 pages in no particular order is just not very practical. Another (not free) source is here, which is now just page images, but will eventually be searchable text.

I guess that would be an obstacle. But it’s something to do on a rainy weekend or (several hundred of them).

Thanks for the link, Kevin. $400 is not a bad price to have the entire PG at hand, and searchable someday.

Actually, clicking the download button does the whole book whichever page displayed belongs to, so that’s infinitely more useful. But the Google brain trust hasn’t provided volume numbers (!), of course. It’d probably only take a few rainy days to get it all, then.

Still, the Rosetta project for a searchable text will be where my money’s at once it’s available. That’s like a dream come true.

Free download? Where and how? It would be a godsend.

Grateful for any help.
