Logos really shines when it comes to the study of biblical Greek and Hebrew, but we’re building an impressive library of Latin texts as well, including the Vulgate, important medieval and Reformation theology texts, and hundreds of Latin titles in the Perseus Classics Collection.
Now we’ve created a tool that makes all these texts easier to use in Logos. The Dictionary of Latin Forms allows you to look up hundreds of thousands of Latin word forms from the famous WORDS Latin-English Dictionary program. This means that you can instantly look up meanings for most words in these texts—not to mention Latin terms used in English texts—just by double-clicking or opening the Information window.
The best part is that you can add this powerful tool to your Logos library for free!
You can also get a great price on Lewis & Short’s Latin Dictionary now on Community Pricing. The free Dictionary of Latin Forms is a handy study aid to get you quickly to a definition and lemma for a word, but Lewis & Short is an expansive dictionary that takes you in-depth with ample examples of usages from classical, Patristic and medieval texts. Even today, more than a hundred years after its publication, it is still consulted, particularly for medieval and Ecclesiastical Latin.
These two resources will make it even easier to study Latin texts in Logos, so place your bid now to help put Lewis & Short’s Latin Dictionary into production.
