A contribution to the Classical Languages Team Project

The database is the electronic version of the Bibliotheca scriptorum Romanorum Teubneriana. It offers the user the complete texts, other than the prefaces or critical apparatus, from the standard editions (editions maiores) of about 800 works spread over eleven centuries (c. 300 BC/BCE to c. 800 AD/CE).

The first release of the Bibliotheca Teubneriana Latina, BTL-1, comprises classical Latin literature in almost its entirety for the period up to the second century, together with the important non-Christian authors from the second century through to the Carolingian Renaissance. It was developed in collaboration with Cetedoc.

BTL-2 includes the complete corpus of texts of the 'Grammatici Latini', 'Servius Grammaticus', a small selection of other texts together with all texts offered in BTL-1. It was developed in collaboration with the Centre « Traditio Litterarum Occidentalium » (CTLO ).

Updates are foreseen for this database in the coming years, making of the Bibliotheca Teubneriana Latina the central reference database for Latin literature from the Roman Republic to the Imperial Period and Late Antiquity, comprising more than 1200 texts. Furthermore, it will include texts drawn from the many out-of-print editions in this series, which, despite being produced in the nineteenth or early twentieth centuries remain standard editions and not replaced by new editions.
