From the Table of Contents page, you can use the Toolbar to return to the Search page, access the global Table of Contents page (enabling you to switch between volumes), open a context-sensitive Help page and consult general information about the database.

There are three ways to access the Table of Contents page. You can:

  • select the Table of Contents button from the Toolbar of any page. This will take you to the global Table of Contents page allowing you to specify the required volume. To do this, enter the relevant number into the box provided and select Choose. You are then presented with the Table of Contents page for that volume.

  • select the Table of Contents button Contextual Table of Contents button corresponding to a particular entry in the Search Results with Context page. This will take you directly to the Table of Contents for the relevant volume, which is expanded to the level of the selected entry in the Search Results with Context.

  • select the Table of Contents button Contextual Table of Contents button in the Full Text page. This will take you directly to the Table of Contents for the relevant volume, which is expanded to the level of the current item.

The Table of Contents page allows you to browse through the contents of all the volumes contained in the Patrologia Latina Database and look at their structure. For example, you may wish to browse the documents of a particular volume, or look at the original context of the document you are currently viewing.

The various levels of heading are represented in the Table of Contents by branches which can be expanded or collapsed. Navigation within the Table of Contents is by means of the buttons Expand Table of Contents button and Collapse Table of Contents button which indicate whether you can expand or collapse a branch to change the level of detail displayed.

Each of the branches in the Table of Contents is a hyperlink allowing you to open the Full Text of the corresponding item. The title of each item is followed by the download size in bytes of the corresponding Full Text page.

Note: The larger the download size of an item, the longer the Full Text page for that item will take to download. You may be prompted to confirm your selection.

The order of the Table of Contents is the same as the Full Text; works are arranged numerically by volume. The contents of the volumes themselves follow their copy texts in structure and order so that headings, divisions and subdivisions within the copy text are preserved. The presence of elements, such as contents lists and indices, which appear outside documents is also indicated in the Table of Contents page. Document and division titles are displayed in capitals and authors are displayed in bold.
