Abstract

We provide an in-depth investigation into the corpus of the opera omnia of Seneca, by applying a number of statistical techniques to textual data. The corpus comprises 23 works plus two tragedies of disputed attribution. The size of the corpus is approximately 364,000 words. Comparison with the corpus of the orationes of Cicero, with the Latin New Testament by Jerome (Vulgata) and with the opera maiora of Thomas Aquinas is provided as well.
