"Important final volume" ?
What was to be contained in the planned final volume -- 188.8.131.52 21:56, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
I extensively used Documenta Catholica Omnia site for scanned images. I think now the index has more information than anything available freely on the internet on the subject, but I'm sure it still has inconsistencies in naming, some factual errors (esp. on the more obscure authors) and quite a few authors missing. Considering the importance of P.G. (since it is extensively scanned and in public domain), a complete index would be valuable for non-academic historiophiles. Who wants to contribute?

For user Uci tlg
Can you prove that the University of Aegean posted illegally copied copyrighted material from Thesaurus Linguae Graecae CD ROM instead of scanning the prototypes? The project 'Roads of Faith' was part of the Interreg III Community initiative which is financed under the European Regional Development Fund. So you say that they used EU fund for an illegal operation which continues undisturbed, as far as I know. Personally, I don't have any affiliation with either UOA or TLG so I can't prove anything and I am simply relying my opinion on good faith. Please provide a link or other means to support your statement or I will have to revert your edit. Dipa1965 (talk) 07:30, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
- This is correct. They did not scan the original Migne volumes. They copied digital files included in the TLG CD ROM (TLG E 1999). Contrary to their claims, the majority of the files (ca 1200 out of the 1800 copied) are not even digital copies of Migne's edition but new versions of the texts based on modern critical editions that differ significantly from the original non-critical version of Migne's Patrology. The University of California has asked the owners of the site to remove the materials but has received no response. UC is now preparing legal action as well as a formal complaint to the Interreg III Community program. We would rather not provide specific evidence from the texts but anyone who has access to the printed volumes of Migne and/or the TLG CD ROM can see that the files were copied from the TLG CD ROM, altered in a rather sloppy way and converted to .pdf format.Uci tlg (talk) 19:40, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
- That's enough for me. It is really a shame if they did so (even worse if they used 20th century critical editions). On my part, I'm not going to revive their link until the dispute is positively resolved. Thank you for the answer and, if it's not a big hassle for you, please keep me informed on the matter.
