Loeb Classical Library

The mission of the Loeb Classical Library, founded by James Loeb in 1911, has always been to make Greek and Latin literature accessible to the broadest range of readers. The digital Loeb Classical Library extends this mission into the twenty-first century. Harvard University Press is honored to renew James Loeb's vision of accessibility and presents an interconnected, fully searchable, perpetually growing and virtual library. More than 520 volumes of Latin, Greek, and English texts allow readers to browse, search, bookmark, annotate, and share contents with ease.
