Winged Words and the Digital Library
Over a century ago, James Loeb announced the founding of the Loeb Classical Library and his intention to bring the written treasures of the ancient Greek and Roman world “within the reach of all who care for the finer things of life.” Now it gives us great pleasure to welcome you – old friends and newcomers, scholars, students, and general readers alike – to the digital Loeb Classical Library, and to invite you to enjoy its Greek and Latin texts alongside English translations, in the familiar ways and in surprisingly new ones.
“The Loeb Library…remains to this day the Anglophone world’s most readily accessible collection of classical masterpieces… Now, with their digitization, [the translations] have crossed yet another frontier.”—Wall Street Journal
“The digital Loeb Classical Library will be a transformative experience for professionals doing research and provide everyone else with a wonderful buffet of reading to browse.”—Weekly Standard
