Classical Works Knowledge Base
1,550 authors3,427 author variants
5,200 works6,544 work variants
The CWKB knowledge base assembles data about Classical works (1,550 authors and 5,200 texts, with variants forms in the main modern languages of Classical studies and common abbreviations). The knowledge base also contains the linking heuristics to the passage level for 6,732 manifestations of Classical works. The full-text services linked to are:
  • the Classical Latin Texts of the Packard Humanities Institute (PHI Latin Texts);
  • the Greek and Roman Texts from the Perseus Digital Library;
  • the Library of Latin Texts - Series A (LLT-A) from Brepols Publishers [licensed];
  • the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG) [licensed] and the Abridged Online TLG.
CWKB does not aim at creating a new canon of Classical literature, but provides a concordance to existing canons and workID registries.
