Jacques-Paul MIGNE


The Patrologiæ Cursus Completus, constituted at the end of the 19th century by Jacques-Paul Migne, is a collection without equivalent from the point of view of its wealth and diversity in philosophical, theological and literary works. It is divided into two series: the Patrologia latina (series latina) and the Patrologia græca (series græco-latina). Classiques Garnier Numérique here offers the Patrologia græca.

The electronic version of the Patrologia Graeca allows new methodological approaches and a whole range of new possibilities on this encyclopaedic collection. With this electronic version, the reader may consult the text and launch sophisticated cross-searches that were hitherto impossible; he can now compare a collection of texts, export them, print them, send it by mail, as well as all search results.

The complete version in image mode can be consulted by means of tables and a number of detailed indices in text mode:
- analytical table of contents (Latin)
- analytical table of contents (Greek)
- search on all authors by century
- search on all titles
- search on notions
- search on subjects.
