Writing research papers? Verbum cites sources automatically.

Verbum turns your phone, tablet, and computer into a searchable seminary library, and when Verbum finds what you’re looking for, it cites it too. Just choose a citation style, and Verbum automatically includes the citation when you paste a quotation. And when you travel to a conference to deliver your paper, any device with Verbum lets you take a library with you in your carry-on.

original languages

Studying original languages? Verbum makes clear Latin, Greek, and Hebrew.

Verbum reads Latin, Greek, and Hebrew for you, defining lemmas and parsing words with a host of lexica and grammars. What would require an entire bookcase of reference materials happens in a few clicks.

From St. Augustine and St. Thomas to Ratzinger and von Balthasar, Verbum links together the whole Tradition.

Verbum interlinks the whole history of biblical commentary and theology in the Church. Resources in Verbum are not merely ebooks: texts are tagged so that when St. Thomas mentions St. Augustine or St. Augustine refers to Ezekiel, a single click reveals the reference.
