Abstract of Article: 

In this article, we continue the discussion about the future of critical editions begun in volume 112 of The Classical Journal by Keeline and continued in volume 114 by Olson. Written from the point of view of two scholars working in the field of digital philology, the article affirms some elements of Keeline’s vision and addresses Olson’s concerns about that vision. Concrete examples from an active pro-ject that seeks to translate the visual elements of traditional critical editions into machine-readable data reveal that Keeline and Olson’s views are not as far apart as they seem.
