For those who may find it useful, I’ve scanned and placed online Weiskotten’s English translation (1919) of Possidius’ Life of St. Augustine. It’s here:
Possidius was a friend of Augustine’s, and his biography remains the principal source for the life of the saint.
Other English translations of the Fathers can be found in the collection:
I also do a CDROM of the collection; if people would like to support the site, you can purchase it from here:
It’s been quite a while since I last had a plain English translation to scan. The great mass of work on the collection of the Fathers was done in the past, and I really don’t think that there are all that many out-of-copyright English texts of patristic works around any more.
But how technology has improved! When I started, OCR produced a bug on every line. Possidius was scanned into the PC in 15 minutes from the Kessinger reprint; an image not of the highest quality. The OCR in Finereader 9 ran through it quickly, and recognised the header and the body of the page. The recognition quality was unbelievable, by comparison with times past. There were probably only a dozen errors in the whole text! It then took an hour to format up, do chapter headings, etc. But it took so little time, and was done so fast.
There really is no excuse for not scanning any English text that someone wants to see online, unless it has some strange format.
