The SWORD Project
The SWORD Project is an effort to create an ever expanding
software package for research and study of God and His Word.
The SWORD Engine is a software framework that allows research
manipulation of Biblical texts. There are a number of projects that use
The SWORD Engine, including Bibletime, and GnomeSword.
Sword is a cross-platform library. It provides a common, open
module format with hundreds of texts.
