Migne - Greek Patrology - Index Page

The following is an index of the volumes of Migne's Greek Patrology that are freely downloadable at Google's book site and through the books section of Archive.org. See also two other helpful linked indices, which may be updated independently of my index (link one link two - see sidebar). I tried to use those lists to supplement the list below in a few places where the list below was incomplete. At this time (7 April 2009) my list is more extensive and exhaustive, though it is not by any means completely exhaustive of the resources at Google Books.

There seem to be two main indices for the Greek Patrology series in Google Books (first index) (second index) The second index appears to be much more extensive than the first. At this time (7 April 2009) the first index lists about 81 tomes in "full view" and the second index lists 172 tomes in "full view." There may be overlap between the lists, though. I have not included the volumes in Google Books where there is merely a limited preview, snippet view, or no preview, although doing so would make the list more complete. [Update: There is also a third index (link) that includes about 75 "full view" tomes. This index, however, appears to be completely encompassed within the two lists above. Additionally, there is a further index (link) that includes some tomes from both the Latin and Greek series.]

I should also note that I have included redundant copies of the tomes whenever I found them. There are several reasons for doing this. As you may notice, the Google scanning team is fast, but not always accurate. Also, the books themselves were not necessarily bound perfectly or maintained in pristine condition. Accordingly, inevitably, when one wishes to look up what so-and-so actually said in Greek, one finds that the line is blurry or smudged, or has the scanner's finger over it -- or perhaps the entire page or section has fallen out of the book (look around in the book, though, sometimes people shoved the leaves back in, in the wrong places. Also, Google sometimes pulls items from full view. This is one reason that the other indices I identified above are out of date: a significant number of its entries have been pulled out of full-view by Google. In such cases, one can perhaps turn to one of the other copies, where available.

UPDATE: I must also express my appreciation to the Cyprian project (link) who have assisted me in tracking down several additional volumes I had not indexed, as well as hosting two volumes that don't seem to be readily available elsewhere at the moment (21 January 2010)(Update: October 9, 2010, a few more copies added.).

UPDATE: Roger Pearse also has a handy list of his own (link to page).

If you use this list, please let me know if any of the links are broken, if you find any links to Google full views of tomes I haven't found, or if you can otherwise help me improve the list. Right now I have not provided the identification of authors for each volume. If I have time, I will do so at a later date.

Hi TF,

Excellent work!

Are you aware of the following site:

http://www.ellopos.net/elpenor/greek-texts/fathers/migne-patrologia-graeca.asp


Grace and peace,

David

Thanks David. Yes, I am aware of it. My understanding though, is that the only way to download the volumes it mentions is through some sort of P2P software that may requirement a user license of some sort (although there is a free trial period). So, I did not include that link above (though obviously, since you've provided it, now the readers can find it too!).
