Now available: Corpus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum (CSEL)

CSEL is now on GitHub!
We’re really proud to announce that EpiDoc XML versions of all 99 volumes of the monumental Corpus Scriptorum Ecclesiasticorum Latinorum (CSEL) are now being added to the Open Greek and Latin Project‘s GitHub repository! The Latin text was OCR-ed, corrected (at 99% accuracy) and encoded according to our specifications by French Data Entry company Jouve. CSEL is the first in a line of texts Jouve is currently helping us digitise. Each XML file is available under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License and contains a link to the scan it was taken from.
While rare, the Latin text still contains some mistakes and typos. Similarly, our basic CTS-compliant EpiDoc markup is waiting to be further annotated. So you -yes,  YOU- come and help us out already! Feel free to pull, push and share this work with friends and colleagues. The more, the merrier!
