[quote author=Elucubrator link=board=2;threadid=72;start=0#288 date=1051313745]<br />William, where did you get it?<br />[/quote]<br /><br />I've been trying to find known-free Unicode editions of Homer. There are nice copies at the Bibliotheca Augustana and I was digging into the references he gave for the text. Two pointed into this guy's site, though not quite correctly. I went digging around (in German... slow for me these days) and found the Scholia. This gentleman is apparently responsible for German crit. editions (not
Teubner) of the Iliad and Odyssey.<br /><br />I thought the Scholia was cool, since I've never seen one of those before. <br /><br />
<br /> That's awesome!!!
A word of warning for the beginners however is necessary: If you click on William's link a 500 page PDF book will appear on your desktop. !!!<br />
<br /><br />Smaller than the scanned books here at Textkit, though.<br /><br />
<br />William has here offered us the compilation of the scholia from the extant codices of the Iliad. Real sweet if your planning on being a Homeric scholar ::) or just for the hell of it. ;D<br />
<br /><br />Just keep in mind that the scholia are interesting, but not always entirely accurate, either. They represent a connection to the earliest Homeric scholarship, which is terribly cool, but the interaction with the scholia should be just as questioning as the interaction with any other work of criticism.<br /><br />Mostly it's just nice to study Homer in Greek with grammar and vocab notes in easier Greek.
