  • Description The Patrologia Latina comprises the works of the Church Fathers from Tertullian in 200 AD to the death of Pope Innocent III in 1216. The database contains the complete Patrologia Latina, encompassing the 221 volumes of the first edition of Jacques-Paul Migne's Patrologia Latina (1844-1855 and 1862-1865), including all prefatory material, original texts, critical apparatus and indexes. Migne's column numbers are also included. Migne originally intended the Patrologia Latina to span the whole history of Latin Christianity up to the eve of the Reformation. The main chronological sequence of authors in the Patrologia Latina runs from about AD 200 to AD 1216. Some medieval texts written after 1216 were incorporated as a commentary or an introduction to the earlier work. (Not updated)
