Update Sources Chrétiennes Online

The Sources Chrétiennes Online (SCO) database was updated. It now provides source texts and French translations from 456 of the 625 printed volumes. Some notable additions are Origen’s Contra Celsum, the Rule of St Benedict, and William of St-Thierry’s Mirror of Faith.

By 2025, the SCO database will cover all volumes by then published in print in the long-running Sources Chrétiennes edition project. In this latest update, historical authors have also been provided with links to external authority files (to be expanded), and it has become possible to click on to the corresponding headwords in the Database of Latin Dictionaries through the short definitions for Latin words in the Instrumenta pop-up.
