Bibliotheca Teubneriana Latina (BTL)
The "Bibliotheca Teubneriana Latina"
(BTL) is a new CD-ROM version of Teubner's Latin text editions. The aim
of this new electronic edition of the well known Teubner texts is to offer
new and advanced research facilities to the classicists. The research software
delivered together with the text database has been developed by the CETEDOC
team who published the "Library of Christian Latin Texts" (please have a look
This first CD-ROM of the "Bibliotheca scriptorum Romanorum Teubneriana" provides
the user with the complete texts (other than the prefaces or critical apparatus)
from the standard editions (editiones maiores) of more or less 500 works spread
over eight centuries (c. 300 B.C.E. to c. 500 A.D./C.E.), from Plautus to Martianus
Capella, and it includes technical texts. At the moment two future updates are
envisaged which will extend the electronic "Bibliotheca Teubneriana Latina" (BTL)
to over 700 texts. With the appearance of the planned updates the CD-Rom will
contain all the editions of the "Bibliotheca Teubneriana" up to and including
those published in 1997. Moreover, it will contain both editions of the last 40
years which are out of print and standard editions of the 19th or early 20th century
which have been neither updated nor replaced by new editions - for instance, Otto
Ribbeck's Virgil (publ. 1894-1895). The electronic updates nevertheless will allow
newly appeared editions to be incorporated into the database. The first CD-ROM (BTL 1)
was published in 1999. Meanwhile BTL 3 has been published.
