Catholic Library Project A site focused on academic research of Catholic tradition. The most unique feature of the site is the ability to view and search on English-Original dual-text works of Tradition, which begins now with the Fathers of the Church. Catholic Library Project contains over 55,000 pages in dual-text format, accomplished by means of hand parallelization through the insertion of more than 25,000 data points. This is one of the largest dual-text collections in the world, and certainly the largest digital collection available for Catholic studies. Our motivation for this work comes from the significant benefit that side-by-side viewing represents for students and professors alike. The total content of the site includes over 250,000 pages in Greek, Latin, and English. Available
