Amanuensis: Roman Law
Amanuensis: Roman Law is a utility for conducting searches within the database of Latin sources pertaining to Roman Law created by the University of Linz (“Romtext”). By courtesy of Hofrat Dr. Josef Menner, the copyright holder of Romtext, Amanuensis: Roman Law includes the complete Romtext database. Amanuensis: Roman Law is available in different versions for Microsoft Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android devices.

Amanuensis itself is freeware. You can use it for free (even in commercial contexts). You can also pass it on for free. However, you must in this case always clearly state the authors’ names. And remember, there is no warranty or liability whatsoever.
Amanuensis: ACO combines the search routine of the original Amanuensis (which is now Amanuensis: Roman Law) with a new database: the Latin portions of the Acts of the Ecumenical Councils (the Greek parts are readily available at TLG). The current and final version, 2.0, includes all Latin portions of ACO. Amanuensis: ACO is available for Windows and MacOS.
Amanuensis: Generic enables you to load any text file and use on it the powerful Amanuensis search interface. Use cases for Amanuensis: Generic include searching through downloads from Archive.org, through Latin or Greek texts (XML-encoded or not; Greek texts can be in betacode) or through your own scans in any language. Check the instructions for more information. As of now, Amanuensis: Generic is only available for Windows.
