The version now available online represents a draft that was finalized in 1998 for an academic assignment. Since that time, numerous additions (and some small corrections) have been made. The present version is tantamount to a rough draft or in the language of software, an early beta release.
The final version will be greatly enhanced in terms of internal links and presentation. Additionally most sources will contain newer translations, while many Greek sources will feature the full Greek text.
For your convenience we have presented below a summary of what this document contains.
