Correcteur Orthographique de Latin

Have you been hoping for a Latin spell-check tool that can be used with Word documents? Now there is one, thanks to Philippe BASCIANO-LE GALL and Marjorie BURGHART.

I’ve tried it out, and it works quite well. The instructions for installation and use are not as complete as they might be (and are in Latin!), but it’s not terribly difficult to figure out how to get it working.

Details here.

Aquinas Opera Omnia

For a few years now, an organization based in Wyoming that calls itself the Aquinas Institute has been at work on the Herculean task of publishing the complete works of Thomas Aquinas in a bilingual Latin-English edition. So far, they’ve published all of the Summa theologiae, as well as the commentaries on Matthew and John and Paul’s epistles. This is, I have to say, pretty cool.

If you go to their website, you’ll see that they are asking people to choose in advance (and pay in advance) for the volumes they would like to see printed next. So check it out, and consider supporting their cause.
