Oh, I get what you're saying now. And no, it's not sad. What's sad is that classical education (learning for the sake of learning) is dismissed in our school systems today.

Yes, there are sites that have the works of the early Church fathers in the original languages. There are also corpuses (yeah, I know ) of medieval Latin works including Aquinas and his newly rediscovered Aristotle. I just never thought of them as being of general interest for an upload site like this. The breviary, however, is something more generally useful.
