Spine Text Window
Behind the universal sign for information, are notes that deal with a subtext of a particular paragraph, or 'chapter' as it is usually referred to in Res Gestae scholarship, essentially allowing for commentary on a whole paragraph without underlining the entire text of the paragraph as a link. Often behind the paragraph gloss will be primary sources, such as Dio Cassius or secondary sources such as modern commentary, relevant to material from the specific paragraph you were reading.
Underlined and colored words in the Res Gestae are linked to annotations which are to be read in the left hand window.
If you come to an annotation from another annotation, this function will allow you to autoscroll the spine text to any chapter in which the annotation appears.
Latin Text: The original latin text as edited by Brunt and Moore.
Brunt's Intro: The entire text of Brunt and Moore's 15 page introduction.
Ancient Authors and Commentary: Provides the user with the non-contextual index of primary and secondary sources for further reading. These are presented as excerpts with all bibliographical and source material noted, although they are themselves not annotated. A list of reading materials for offline viewing is also included.
In Res Gestae Divi Augustus, the paragraphs correspond to chapters in the original document. This function allows you to autoscroll the spine text to any chapter you enter into the input field. After you type in your chapter number from 1-35, press <Enter> key.
