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.
