An email from Stephan Huller brings the following interesting information:
Did you know that all the old books in Greek public libraries – many dating to the sixteenth, seventeenth or eighteenth centuries – are available online at this address:
Just press the large orange banner and then type in the Greek name of any Church Father (or the name of Latin Fathers in regular fonts). It’s amazing what books are available there. I am not sure what is or isn’t available on archive.org but there’s tons of stuff here.
Hmm. I think you have to enter Greek text, but this sounds *very* interesting!
UPDATE: Stephan adds:
There are also handwritten copies of obscure manuscripts I didn’t know existed especially at the library of Zagoras. That library was part of a center of learning started by a rich Greek merchant named John Priggos who sent a thousand books from Amsterdam c 1762. The library has an interesting history
