Two new modules have been added to Oxford Scholarly Editions Online (OSEO) this month, comprising of more than 60 scholarly editions: Latin Drama and Latin History. These modules include the full works of the historians Livy and Tacitus, and the dramatist Terence, plus the three-volume Fragments of Roman Historians, edited by T. J. Cornell, which is the only modern comprehensive edition of the fragments of the Roman historians.
OSEO now provides access to more than 750 scholarly editions of material written between 1485 and 1837, plus Classical Latin poets, historians, and dramatists. These editions contain over 88,000 different works, from plays to poetry to letters, the equivalent of more than 381,000 print pages.

Discover samples of the new content for yourself by using the links below:
- Livy describes the death of Remus in his story of the founding of Rome
- “They consider it wrong to eat hare, chicken, or goose, but still they look after them for pleasure and amusement” - read Caesar’s account of indigenous Britons
- Sallust writes about the perils of getting involved in politics
Don't forget, with all Latin modules you can read texts and translations side by side and look up words in the Oxford Latin Dictionary --the leading Latin dictionary exclusive to OSEO. If you want to focus only on the Latin texts then you can access the classics wing through a convenient side door at www.oxfordscholarlyeditions.com/classics, which restricts all searches to the Latin content.
