Confluence has been upgraded!

https://wiki.shanti.virginia.edu/ is now a read-only repository. It will be permanently decommissioned on December 15, 2019. Visit UVA's new instance of Confluence to create new wikis or modify existing content.

You can read texts in the Mandala Texts interface or in PubReader. If you want to see text statistics, like word frequencies, you'll view the text in Voyant. Check out the Get Text Statistics guide for help.
