Standard notation for biblical quotations

The queries formulated in applications or directly on the "URL Endpoint" (seeSviluppatori below) must be made using the standard notation for the biblical quotations. Each biblical quotation, with this notation, consists of a minimum of two elements: the designation of the biblical Book followed by the chapter. For the indication of the verses to mention, there are also various "operators" that allow you to specify various combinations of verses mention.

  • the biblical Book: can be indicated either in full form, both with its abbreviation (which must be accepted as in the sectionAbbreviazioni dei Libri Biblici. Some biblical books have more than one name may be indicated. For example, "Ecclesiasticus" or "Ecclesiastical", depending on the Edition cited biblical. Apart from the biblical version, request both the other name will be recognized. In the quote returned though it returns the proper name of the biblical version request. For example, for version "cei2008" will return "Sirach", while the "luzzi" will return "Cleric".
  • Chapter: follow the indication of the biblical book, the chapter must be indicated which must be a valid chapter of that book. Clearly the chapter format can be a number from one to three digits, the first digit cannot be 0 (from 1 to 999). The biblical book with many chapters is Psalms with 150 chapters, so it wouldn't be a valid number greater than 150. (For developers: in the future, the PHP engine will perform a control Endpoint on the validity of the section required for that book, and if the requested section is not valid for the requested paper, it will return an error message to the user that invites to correct chapter designation.) "Genesis 1" is already a valid claim, as it is also "Gen1".
  • verses: as an indication, the indication to verse a verse must be valid for that chapter of the biblical book. (For developers: in the future, the PHP engine will perform a control Endpoint on the validity of the verse or verses required for that chapter, and the verse or verses are not valid for that chapter of that book, it will return an error message to the user that invites you to correct the indication of verse/verses.) "Genesis 1 .1" is a valid claim, as it is also "Gen1" .1.
    • the comma ",": the comma is the separator "chapter-verse"
    • the dot ".": the point is the separator "verse-then-verse"
    • the hyphen ("-"): the hyphen is the separator "from-to", and can be used in one of three ways:
      1. from chapter to chapter
      2. from chapter-verse to verse of the same chapter
      3. from chapter-verse in chapter-verse
    • the semicolon ";": "semicolon" is the separator of multiple queries. When the query that follows the semicolon has no indication of book, it is implied that this is the same book as the previous query. Clearly at least the first query should be indication of book.
