|The production of the Patrologia Latina Database
was undertaken with the advice and assistance of an Editorial Board.
The board resolved that the database should contain the whole of Migne's
Patrologia Latina. No part of the text - prefatory material,
various kinds of notes, appendices - was to be omitted.
Since the Editorial Board took as its first principle the obligation
to keep Migne's text intact, it further resolved not to intrude
into the Patrologia Latina with textual emendations. The
Board did decide however that it would be useful to include more
recent bibliographic information in the coding of the data. Consequently,
individual documents have been given one of three codes each corresponding
to one of three standard reference works.
In addition, the Editorial Board decided that a distinction should
be made in the Patrologia Latina Database
between medieval and modern authors.
