PHI 5.3 is a Latin language equivalent of Thesaurus Linguae Graecae. This package used to be licensed at a small cost to individuals. Not many people know this , but currently PHI 5.3 (as well as PHI 7) can be obtained freely from the Packard Humanities Institute. Here is a quote from the License Agreement:

These materials are intended for non-commercial scholarly use by universities and scholars. The CD ROMs are being made available by means of a license agreement with an indefinite term. The fact that we offer this license at no charge (including shipping & handling costs) reflects PHI's desire that the texts on the discs be available to all interested scholars and institutions for educational purposes.

A brief description:

PHI currently offers two CD ROMs of classical texts:
PHI CD #5.3 ("Latin", issued 1991) contains virtually all classical Latin literature through A.D. 200, together with a few later texts (e.g. Servius, Porphyry, Zeno, Justinian). As an extra bonus we have also included the following versions of the Bible: Hebrew, Septuagint, Greek and Coptic New Testaments, Latin Vulgate, King James, and RSV.
PHI CD #7 ("Greek Documentary", issued 1997) contains (1) documentary papyri prepared at Duke University with the help of the University of Michigan; (2) Greek inscriptions prepared at Cornell, Ohio State University, et al.; and (3) a Coptic New Testament prepared at Yale and the Nag Hammadi texts as prepared at the University of Claremont.


For everybody's convenience I am making the License agreement and the Order form available here (I have the Packard Humanities Institute's permission, of course):

PHI files


The best thing about PHI is that the texts are often taken from the best editions and their quality is quite impressive. This is not your usual TheLatinLibrary.com stuff which is all too often unusable for any serious reader of Classical texts.
Keep in mind, that you need to also find some software that is capable of displaying the text found on PHI CDs as well as Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG). I would recommend Musaios or Diogenes.

Greek and Roman Gods and Goddesses: a Memory game

I only had enough room for the main deities. Conveniently enough, there were twelve "spots", just enough for all the Olympian gods. The original Greek names and the Roman equivalents are included. Perhaps some students will find this useful.

Hebrew Alphabet Game

It would have been a shame not to reuse the code from the Greek alphabet game to make a Hebrew alphabet app! My hebrew is virtually non-existent, but I don't think I made any major mistakes :)

Hebrew Alphabet Game

When I get a chance I might use this code to make more alphabet learning tools for non-Latin scripts, but I don't really have anything specific in mind at this point.

Latin course online - paid for by the British government!

 
That's right! A simple course, good enough for a beginner is available at the website of the National Archives:

The tutorial covers the period between 1086 and 1733, when Latin was the official language of documents written in England.

Knowing Latin will help you to read documents from this period. After 1733, official documents were written in English.

No previous knowledge of Latin is required.


Their mission is pretty clear and laudable. What makes these efforts special, they are aimed to teach Medieval Latin, which is somewhat rare, even though the demand for such courses is quite high, I believe. You can find a good number of quality textbooks online that cover Classical Latin, but for Medieval Latin there are only a few books that you probably have to buy. I particularly enjoy, as I have made it clear, the government involvement in this project.
