Search Operations

The search language used by TextCritical.net allows several operations. Here are some common ones:

Search for verses with both ἱστορίας and νόμον:

ἱστορίας νόμον

Search for verses with the phrase "ἱστορίας νόμον":

"ἱστορίας νόμον"

Search for verses with the word ἱστορίας or νόμον:

ἱστορίας OR νόμον

Search for verses with the word συγγνώμην provided they don't include either ἱστορίας or νόμον:

συγγνώμην NOT (ἱστορίας OR νόμον)

The search engine accepts beta-code representations of Greek words. Thus, a search for no/mon is equivalent to a search for νόμον:

no/mon

Heads up! If you are searching using beta-code, make sure to put your search query in single quotes (e.g. 'no/mon')

Searching Related Forms

Searching for related forms causes the search engine to look for all other variations of a word. For example, a search for ἀδελφός would also search for ἀδελφοί, ἀδελφοῦ, ἀδελφοί, etc.

Heads up! Searching for related forms is considerably slower than searching for a particular form.

Search Fields

Several fields exist that can be be searched. Just append the field name to the search with a colon to search it (e.g. work:new-testament). Below are the available fields

Field Description Example
work Search for items within a particular work (New Testament, Agammenon, etc.) work:"New Testament"
