Please Note

This large collection of texts is batch-processed from high-quality transcriptions created as part of an academic archival process. The large number of texts, and the smaller market for each individual text, means that Logos cannot yet give individual attention to each document the way we do for most Logos Editions. The batch-processing will tag Bible references present in standard formats and perform limited tagging, but most texts will not get individual attention or editorial work. You will find untagged references, antiquated spelling, and literal presentation of archaic conventions in writing and typesetting. In time we hope to revisit these texts (based on use and our continuing maintenance program) and add more tagging and editorial work.
