  • Unit 2
    • The second unit walks you through the functions of the software in-depth, from searching your library to the construction of custom layouts. It covers tagging, collections, the passage guide and the construction of custom guides, notes, clippings, and much more. This unit will teach you how to set up work spaces designed for different types of research, such as lectionary-based study or the reading of the Church Fathers. By the end of Unit 2, you’ll master advanced Verbum functions, taking control of your vast library.
  • Unit 3
    • The third unit builds on Unit 2, but focuses on original language work. It covers the interlinear and reverse interlinear Bibles, the exegetical guide, Bible word studies, morphological searching and much more. Special emphasis is placed on using Verbum’s language functionality to situate the original texts within the context of the Septuagint and the writings of the Apostolic Fathers. By the end of Unit 3, you will have a handle on Verbum’s language capabilities and will understand how to use them, even if you have no Greek or Hebrew training.
  • Unit 4
    • The fourth unit focuses on advanced research techniques and ties the first three units together. It is organized around several large example studies, each one focusing on a different dimension of Catholic research, from the four senses of Scripture to the historical-critical method. You will harness even more of the software’s abilities, and advance your study of the Faith. By the end of Unit 4, you will be a Verbum expert!
