Biblia Sacra Vulgata VULGATE

Publisher: Public Domain

Version Information

Jerome's translation of the Greek and Hebrew Scriptures into the common language, Latin, was completed in 405. It was recognized as authoritative during the Council of Trent (1546) and became the official Bible of the Roman Catholic Church. The widespread use of the Vulgate is also recognizable in its influence in early modern Bible translations, such as the Authorized, or King James, Version. The Vulgate continues to be of scholarly use today in the study of the textual transmission of the Bible and in the historical study of Christian theology. The Vulgate present on the Bible Gateway is the fourth edition of the Biblia Sacra iuxta vulgatam versionem. It was originally published in 1969, and this fourth edition was released in 1994.
