We look forward to adding further editions and translations of Christian texts from antiquity to the “Patristic Text Archive”:

If you would like to contribute, please contact Annette von Stockhausen. All editions and translations published in the Patristic Text Archive must be licensed under an open license (CC-BY, CC-BY-SA) and written in accordance with the edition guidelines. We'll assist you, if you need help.

But you can also help on a small scale: The “Patristic Text Archive” is under construction and the texts are sure to contain errors. If you find an error, please report it here or (if you do not have a github account) by email to Annette von Stockhausen.
