Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (ABRIDGED)

The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG) is a research program at the University of California, Irvine. Founded in 1972, the TLG has collected and digitized most literary texts written in Greek from Homer to the fall of Byzantium in AD 1453. Its goal is to create a comprehensive digital library of Greek literature from antiquity to the present era. The TLG has also digitized a number of lexica, most notably the Liddell-Scott-Jones Greek English Lexicon. All lexica are linked to the TLG corpus.

The library no longer has a subscription to TLG, but you can access the Abridged TLG, the Canon bibliographies, and TLG’s lexica without a subscription. The Abridged TLG uses the same search engine with a smaller number of texts. It covers most of the classical authors and some patristic texts.
