Heritage of the Printed Book Database (HPB) Heritage of the Printed Book in Europe (previously called the Hand Press Book Database) The HPB Database (previously called the Hand Press Book Database) is a steadily growing collection of files of catalogue records from major European and North American research libraries covering items of European printing of the hand-press period (c.1455-c.1830) integrated into one file.

I also wish to thank Efthimios Mavrogeorgiadis and Dave Vezie for their development of the Orthodox page with its collection of icons that I used for the section on how icons represent depth. Lastly, but in no way the least, I wish to acknowledge Margaret Krantz for her invaluable help as proofreader, editor, and critic of the efforts here.

Pliny 6.16 Pliny Letter 6.16 My dear Tacitus, You ask me to write you something about the death of my uncle so that the account you transmit to posterity is as reliable as possible.

He perished in a devastation of the loveliest of lands, in a memorable disaster shared by peoples and cities, but this will be a kind of eternal life for him.

Welcome to the Suda On Line (SOL) The Suda on Line For Attic phrase in Plato let them seek, I poach in Suidas for unlicens'd Greek. ― Alexander Pope, The Dunciad 4.227-8 Pope’s ‘Suidas’ is not a man but a work, The Suda (or Stronghold): a massive 10th century Byzantine Greek historical encyclopedia of the ancient Mediterranean world, covering the whole of Greek and Roman antiquity and also including Biblical and Christian material. Preserved in several medieval manuscripts, it has been edited and published several times since the end of the 14th century in traditional hard-copy scholarly editions, most recently that of Ada Adler (Teubner, 5 volumes: 1928-1938, reprinted 1971). The Suda On Line (SOL) project, begun in 1998 as part of the Stoa Consortium, opens up this stronghold of information by means of a freely accessible, keyword-searchable database, with English translations, notes, bibliography, and links to other electronic resources.
