Oxford Classical Texts

My email to Oxford University Press customer service:

I recently purchased Opera Omnia (Tomus III: Expedito Cyri) from the Oxford Classical Texts series, and I write to report several major issues with the print quality.

The current text is unreadable. According to the publication page, the work was digitally transferred in the late 1980s. I have a 1920s edition and the new edition in front of me, and the new edition is best described as ...

I'm a beginner at greek and I don't know much latin either. Its mostly the text of revelation that i am interested in and it centers around 'apviov' and the words surrounding it. The kai ligature is something else that I am interested in, I wonder if sometimes they have been added to manuscripts later than the original writings. Must be said, but if i am told to 'beware of the scribes' then thats exactly ...

First Post - Need a suggestion for a beginner's textbook

Aloha All - This is my first post. I've been interested in learning Latin for some time now and was thrilled to find this website and the forums. I read a lot of medieval history and find many quotes in Latin that aren't translated so I'm always wondering what I'm missing. I noticed there are several textbooks for beginners from which to choose. Can some of you weigh in with some suggestions on what to ...

Every click on textkit takes a minute or more to process. I suspect that it is because of my temporary internet connection situation. But it is curious that it is only textkit that behaves this way and not other forums. Jeff, can you adjust some parameter or another for me? :D

I'm translating the Christian Greek scriptures

My name is Tim and I would like to be certain regarding the understanding of the ancient Greek text I am reading. I'm beginning in Matthew chapter 1 and have already noticed a couple of interesting things. For instance I found this text in the early Codex Purpureus Rossanensis (Σ) (6th century):

Ιωσηφ υιος ΔΑΔ μη φοβηθης παραλαβειν Μαριαμ την γυναικα σου· το γαρ εν αυτη γεννηθεν εκ πνευματος εστιν αγιου·

This is the ...

I'm imputerate

Hello, my name is Peter and I'm imputerate. I have been reading serious
literature for over two-thirds of a century, much of it from the trove of

it's time to seriously take on Greek and Latin (two years of the latter in
high school, but...).

Just as ...
