There are plenty of websites presenting multi-volume works of St. Thomas Aquinas in HTML formatted chunks such as New Advent's Summa Theologiae.

I'm looking for a website containing similarly HTML formatted chunks preferably with table of contents for the 12 volume set Dogmatic Theology by Joseph Pohle, S.J.. All I can find is a PDF version of the books from archive.org, a result of Google digitizing project. Logos has it, but it's not free.

It looks like only one of the 12 volumes has been converted, courtesy of Suzanne Lybarger, David King, and the Online Distributed Proofreaders Team, and hosted in the Project Gutenberg website: Grace, Actual and Habitual: A Dogmatic Treatise.

In lieu of HTML formatted website, clean digital files (PDF, EPUB, etc.) with table of contents are also acceptable.

  • @Geremia Thanks. Edited the question. – GratefulDisciple Oct 22 '19 at 17:04
  • @Geremia. In Logos product pages, the samples are from the original, such as one that I own, Summa Theologica, Logos provides the table of contents as well hyperlinked other answers within ST and church father's books quite nicely. They provide automatic updates whenever they add new hyperlinks when they digitize more books, part of their "upsell" strategy as well. Starting 2-3 years ago they try to reach out to the Catholics using the Verbum brand and packages but the underlying technology is the same. – GratefulDisciple Oct 22 '19 at 21:25

  • +1 For clean digital format that has table of contents, and that still preserves the footnote superscripts within the text. +1 for clean OCR of the Greek and Hebrew characters. +1 for preserving the typesetting. Tested with calibre reader, looks very good. Reading with a PDF reader for the original scanned version side by side the EPUB reader make it still easy to read the footnotes in the scanned image. Thanks! – GratefulDisciple Oct 26 '19 at 15:25
  • @GratefulDisciple The EPUBs have footnotes and EPUB tables of contents now. – Geremia Oct 29 '19 at 23:42
  • Wow, that's great. Thanks! Some day I'd like to try generating EPUB programmatically. It has all the features I need. – GratefulDisciple Oct 30 '19 at 0:08
  • @GratefulDisciple Calibre can do that; cf. its ebook-convert. (The Pohle-Preuss EPUBs were generated by Calibre.) – Geremia Oct 30 '19 at 18:22
  • @GratefulDisciple In Calibre, you can select a book and hit the "c" key to convert it to EPUB or several other formats. – Geremia Oct 30 '19 at 18:57
