Migne's Patrologiae Cursus Completus - Latin & Greek

Would anyone here happen to know of a library that has a set of Migne's Patrologiae Cursus Completus, both Latin and Greek?

I want the original versions, either in book or image form. I don't want the Religion and Technology Center's electronic versions because I want them uncopyrighted.

Styx introduces himself

Hi, I call myself Styx Boatman. I'm presently taking up Latin and hopefully I too shall take up Classical Greek.

Ja ne!

New works


I was perusing a copy of Harry Potter in Ancient Greek, lamenting the time it'll take for me to be fluent enough to read it when it dawned upon me. How much modern work is there for the Homeric and Attic dialects of greek? I'm talking stuff like horror, fiction, et al.

It might be very difficult to have modern time works due to vocabulary, but the person who translated Harry Potter invented a ...

Translation question

I am working on chapter 7 and have a question about one of the english to latin translations....practice and review #13 page 46.

comparative between two members

Hi, I'm working through Chase and Phillips, Chapter 9.

arrest and trial...conspirators

I am having trouble translating this sentence in "The Arrest and Trial of the Conspirators."

Res praetoribus nota erat solis,...

I can't tell whether nota is imperative or perfect passive. If perfect passive, wouldn't it be notata erat?

The thing had been marked by the magistrates alone. (Why no 'ab' before praetoribus?)
