Language and Literature

Latin literature, the body of written works in the Latin language, remains an enduring legacy of the culture of ancient Rome. The Romans produced many works of poetry, comedy, tragedy, satire, history, and rhetoric, drawing heavily on the traditions of other cultures and particularly on the more matured literary tradition of Greece. Long after the Western Roman Empire had fallen, the Latin language continued to play a central role in western European civilization.

Gnomon Online: Latin Inscriptions

You find here a link to a Folio-Infobase with the complete Dessau's "Inscriptiones Latinae Selectae", a growing number of Ann.Épigr. volumes, and a large and continually enhanced sample of inscriptions from the C.I.L. (135,000 texts). The texts are modified for computerization and thus don't replace printed editions in any way.
