The Latin and Greek wing of Oxford Scholarly Editions Online (OSEO) opens with Oxford University Press’s (OUP) editions of Latin poetry, including the complete works of Horace, Ovid, and Virgil. This update contains over 60 editions of Latin texts: volumes from the from the prestigious and authoritative Oxford Classical Texts series, translations of all the major works, and separate editions and commentaries. These are the essential materials for all students and researchers of Latin: reliable and citable primary texts, helpful commentaries, and translations.
New research tools enable readers of Latin to read texts and translations side by side and look up words in the Oxford Latin Dictionary – the leading Latin dictionary exclusive to OSEO – using a brand-new dictionary widget.
Discover samples of the new content for yourself by using the links below:
- Horace urges us to ‘seize the day’ (English)

Our programme of six-monthly updates (in January and July) will see the inclusion in OSEO of all OUP's editions of Latin texts over the next year, followed by our editions of ancient Greek – find out what's next with the content updates.
All our Latin texts have been added to OSEO as normal, but classicists who want to focus only on the Latin texts can access the classics wing through a convenient side door at www.oxfordscholarlyeditions.com/classics, which restricts all searches to the Latin content.
