Logos: FREE Perseus Classics Collection!

August 20, 2011

I would be remiss if I did not mention this great new FREE resource for historical research:

The Perseus Classics Collection (1,114 vols.) contains works from classical Greek and Roman authors. This massive collection includes important Greek and Latin classics in their original languages; some works have an English translation. Greek and Latin grammars and commentaries are also included.

Best of all, this entire collection is free. There’s no catch. No strings attached.

It’s rare that classic works like these are made available for free to as many people who want them. It’s even more amazing when you consider that these aren’t just PDFs or text files. They’re Logos books, and they take advantage of many of the features and tools built into Logos Bible Software. So it’s hard to put into words how phenomenal this opportunity really is.

Apparently, for those without Logos according to Jim West, you can download the ‘core’ of Logos 4.3 for free, and then I suppose ‘but’ these free books (which will require setting up a membership and a credit card, but I can assure you having acquired free resources from Logos before: there will be no charge on your card!). If there are non-Logos users that try this please let me know how it works.

This collection includes the works of:

  • Aristophanes
  • Aristotle
  • Marcus Tullius Cicero
  • Terence
  • Homer
  • Horace
  • Hippocrates
  • Plato
  • Plutarch
  • Seneca
  • Sophocles
  • Cornelius Tacitus
  • Tertullian
  • Xenophon
  • And many more!
