Editions and Translations Proclus

The following list contains all editions and translations of Proclus’ works published after 1900 (a few editions published before this date are quoted when there is no other available). Included are also Marinus, Vita Procli and the Chaldaean Oracles. Everything published before the 20th century is referred to only if it is still considered a standard or important work for Proclean studies. The order and numbering of the different titles is those used in the canon of the TLG (cf. Berkowitz, L. / Squitier, K.A., Thesaurus Linguae Graecae: Canon of Greek Authors and Works, third edition, New York / Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1990, 333-334). The editions are listed first, followed by the translations. Both are in chronological order. Any comment or suggestion concerning this list, or any additional reference should be directed to Christoph Helmig and will be received with gratitude.
