Perseus Project

The Perseus Project ( Perseus Digital Library) is a not - for-profit project to create a digital library. It is located at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, USA, where it is operated by the Department of Classics. Planning began in 1985, 1987, the first collections were created.

The goal is a comprehensive and freely accessible online library for the humanities, where the emphasis is clearly on the source collection to antiquity and particular attention to the archaic and classical period. The sources are usually translated, but also the respective original texts (Greek and Latin, but also are papyri of cost ) are available as well as some older dictionaries. Editor in charge of the project, which is one of the most important collections of sources available online to antiquity, Gregory Crane is.

Also materials on other topics are also increasingly set, especially the history of the United States in the 19th century.
