Xiphos is a bible study program for the gnome desktop environment, based on the sword project by the crosswire bible society, a framework for developing bible study tools and of associated texts such as commentaries and dictionaries.
this package provides the main xiphos program, a digital text reader with bookmarks and full-text search. it allows viewing multiple versions of the same text, for parallel reading of alternatives or translations. it also supports personal verse-specific notes and a rich-text study pad, both of which have spell checking and full-text search.
xiphos has a built-in facility to browse and install freely-distributed content from crosswire repositories.
