Logos, in the Beginning

The publisher of the searchable Fathers of the Church CD, Logos Bible Software, has collected a number of Gnostic and apocryphal texts, with the intention of developing electronic versions. The Logos editions will be fully searchable, and all references and footnotes will operate as hotspots, immediately presenting the cited information whenever the cursor rolls over them. The project is just getting started, but you can take a look and even pre-order a package.

There’s one book in the supplemental material which could be very cool. Irish Apocrypha — not just really good marketing of the odd bits and pieces of early medieval Irish Bible fanfic and collections of it from odd corners elsewhere, but also framework for where that all fits into the larger scheme of Christendom.

The larger point is that, if the gates are open, I have a really good excuse for reading my favorite Bible fanfic from Auraicept na n-Eces, a collection of poet textbooks. The copy from U of Toronto is now up on archive.org, which is certainly more convenient than photocopying the whole book (which is what I did back in the day). :)

I will warn folks that archive.org’s text recognition on these old books is practically useless. But if you get Foxit Reader, you will at least be able to live with the horrors of .pdf.
