Perseus Returns with Glowing Reviews

Logos just finished shipping the last of the free Perseus Collections. This was no small feat! Our initial offering of the Perseus Collections was wildly successful. Now that we have shipped the last of those orders, we have made the Perseus Collections available again!

What People Are Saying about Perseus

Perseus has created quite a bit of excitement on the Logos Forums, but that’s not the only place you can experience the buzz. Many bloggers have been discussing the value of having these collections available from Logos.

Here are just a few of those reviews:

“Logos has done us all a great big favor by making this available and then they went above and beyond by making sure it was free and integrated. I’m sure you’ll enjoy having these resources.”—Brian LePort

“Good research requires, doesn’t it, source materials.  Too much scholarship is based on references to works that are references to works that are references to works.  Length of bibliography doesn’t guarantee accuracy, however, as sometimes mistakes are simply canonized by constant repetition.  With these tools at hand, authentic research can be done.”—Dr. Jim West

“Now there is a convenient way to do Greek New Testament (and LXX) word studies that not only give you material from other parts of Scripture (or Josephus or Philo or the Greek Pseudepigrapha), but a huge collection of classical literature! This is awesome!”—Nijay Gupta

“I think the material is a wonderful addition to the program and as easy to access and search as all the other resources available in the Logos Bible program, which is the program I use for all my Bible study, Bible reading, and Bible teaching. I’ve also made use of Logos Bible Software in writing my books. In fact, I wouldn’t want to be without the program. It’s made things much easier for me and saved me enormous amounts of time.”—R. P. Nettlehorst

“So by now it should be obvious just how useful having these resources in Logos 4 really is. Once you start adding search features into the equation then the usefulness is increased exponentially.”—Nick Norelli

Perhaps you missed out on Perseus the first time around because you weren’t sure how you would use them. While these collections certainly aren’t for everyone, the responses have been overwhelmingly positive. If you have decided you would like the Perseus Collections for yourself, they are available now—and they’re still free!

Don’t Forget about the Liddell and Scott’s Greek-English Lexicon!

For those who have received their downloads of the Perseus Classics Collection, don’t forget to check out the Liddell Scott Greek-English Lexicon. As we shared on Logos Talk back in September, LSJ has been updated with nearly 200,000 references to the Greek classics in the Perseus Classics Collection. It is the perfect addition to the Perseus Classics Collection. Pick yours up today!

    A good friend of mine received the entire collection and is so thrilled about having all of this content. He asked me how to create each of these as collections, so that he could search each offering. Do you have a shortcut to do this?

    Thanks

  3. Nicely done. Any chance you might also be able to convert the Perseus version of Lewis & Short’s Latin Dictionary into a format similar to your LSJ? (I know that the XML for it isn’t online, but they will give you a copy if you ask.)
