Classic Thesis for LyX

Here is a LyX port of “A Classic Thesis Style” by André Miede.  This high quality thesis style for LaTeX was inspired by Robert Bringhurst’s “The Elements of Typographic Style”.

For the most recent versions of the Classic Thesis template, please see the Google Code page where the project currently resides:


The port was made by myself in March, 2009, using LyX version 1.6.2 with MacTEX-2008, on Mac OS X 10.4.11. I had first adapted the classicthesis.sty to my own needs for typesetting my PhD thesis using LyX. Then, since there was some interest on the Internet for a LyX version, I decided to convert the .tex example files released with Classic Thesis into LyX.

  • Download a package of the LyX versions of all example files. (last updated 10/08/2009)
  • Preview the resulting PDF.

If you appreciate the Classic Thesis template, please send a postcard to André.
