Patrologia Latina

We frequently get requests for Patrologia Latina here at the Library. The Patrologia was published by Jacques-Paul Migne between 1844 and 1855 and is essentially a collection (in Latin) of ecclesiastical writings by the church fathers from Tertullian to Pope Innocent III. Unfortunately, we do not have access in either print or microform locally. Nor to we have a subscription to the online subscription version of the Patrologia (although USU students may use this online version in the Lee Library at BYU). Fortunately, access to some of the content is now available through a WIKI with links out to digitized versions of the PL. This is not an ideal solution, but it is a start:

The Patrologia Gracae is also available through the same WIKI:
