Not that I am aware of. Commentarial Pali is different from sutta Pali and is rather dense and rather difficult, which is why, I would guess, so little has actually been translated.Christopherxx wrote:Thanks TB,
I was refering to the classical authors such as Buddhaghosa and Dhammapala. Along with the traditional writers of the Tika (Subcommentary).

Apart from purchasing and or viewing online, are there any monasteries and or buddhist centres that are known as hosts of these texts (all) in english?
The amount in English -- including the PTS and other sources -- is really very, very small compared to what there is of the main commntaries, not mention the sub-commentaries. It is too bad, but translating this stuff is work that requires a fair amount of training, plus having the time and desire to do it.Cittasanto wrote:There are some published by PTS
have a look at the comentaries section for the list of published ones
although one is found in the canon (Paṭisambhidāmagga) which is translated by them also.
