This page takes a while to download, so I've split out these older announcements.
31/12/99 : Photo of Rigaltius main title page added. Ante-Nicene Fathers translations moved onto this site so you can search them.
28/12/99 : Details on the Rigaltius edition added. List of editions modified.
18/12/99 : Your Christmas present for 1999! The Latin text of De Ieiunio from CSEL 20/CCL 2 has been uploaded. It seems somehow rather seasonal!
17/12/99 : Site administration page added so I can put statistics programs on it.
16/12/99 : The English versions of Borleffs on the Luxembourg ms and Kroymann on the Italian mss have been revised to improve readability and remove some errors.
10/12/99 : All pages should now carry a functioning hit counter.
10/12/99 : Reference to Greg Hays' online bibliography for Fulgentius the Mythographer(who quotes De Fato) updated to http://www.people.virginia.edu/~bgh2n/fulgbib.html. Sorry things have been a bit quiet lately - I've been working on the Latin Translator and trying to find out how to get the tertullian.org site properly functional. I've got lots more stuff to upload when I next get a break! Thanks to all the kind people who have emailed me this autumn and encouraged me with their own enthusiasm for Tertullian. I've also started to add hit counters to the pages so I can see what's popular (or otherwise).
05/11/99 : These pages have moved! The new site is at www.tertullian.org. The old site at www.chieftainsys.demon.co.uk will disappear during February 2000, so please reset your bookmarks. The old site is no longer being updated.
27/09/99 : Latin text of De Pallio added.
24/09/99 : Latin pages updated with better information about where they came from. Thanks to Ulrich Harsch for his kind assistance here. Bibliography updated a bit - also page on Rediscovery, because I've been reading Sabbadini.
The pace of change on these pages will slow down a bit in the next 2-3 months as I work on my Latin translator. However there is still a lot I want to put up here. In particular I hope to add full-colour images of one of the MSS of the Apologeticum once I've worked out how to illuminate it properly so I can photograph it - I'm learning more about photography at the moment than I ever wanted to know. But I hope the results will be worth it. I also hope to acquire a proper URL for this site in due course.
Very sincere thanks to Dr. Ian Balfour for encouraging me to go along to the Oxford Patristics Conference last month, and for introducing me to so many interesting and helpful people, and also for showing me a very kind entry for this site in the Chronica Tertullianea et Cyprianea. All in all a very enjoyable and educational experience, even for the one day I was there.
