CCEL.org books in gemini format

CCEL, the Christian Classics Ethereal Library, (which happens to be my current employer), has hundreds of books in their ThML format. (Their library is free to use for non-commercial purposes).
I've recently written a script to convert that into gemtext, which you can see here: https://git.sr.ht/~earboxer/thml2gmi

I've cobbled some scripts together for browsing their library on gemini
gemini://gemini.zachdecook.com/cgi-bin/ccelindex.sh -- currently, the script fails on some of these books.

The ThML format is XML, and provides for different sections, has footnotes, (optional) page break indicators, scripture and author references/links, and has good header information as well, which might be of interest in organizing a library. (More info can be read at https://ccel.org/ThML/index.html).

I would be interested in converting some of these to whatever format booksin.space desires for the library, and/or providing scripts to render this as gemtext.

I'd never heard of ThML before. If you have particular texts you'd like
to be included in the booksin.space library, I think converting them to
gemtext format and filling some basic metadata into a YAML template is
all it would take to contribute them. (Things have stalled out around
here so this template does not yet exist!) I'll try and write up a
template this evening or the next so people can start adding books.

Thanks for your interest :)
