We seek to collate and transcribe all extant ancient manuscripts of the Vulgate and Old Latin Bible and publish them available at Vulgate. Most editors of the Greek New Testament take the evidence of the early versions seriously and this is especially true of the Old Latin Bible and St. A new English translation for the Vulgate and Vetus Latina. Collate Biblical citations made by Latin Church Fathers. Vetus Latina In the early days of Western Christianity there was no one acknowledged Latin version, but that every one who had any real or supposed competency or at least, many such persons made versions for themselves, and that these were pretty extensively used.

In addition, the relationship of the Codex Vaticanus and the Latin Vulgate was poorly understood which led to an undervalue of the Codex Vaticanus. Most of the first part of the Codex containing the books of the Tanakh is now missing. However, the surviving parts of the Old Testament do include the Apocrypha. Bible scholar Kirsopp Lake originally held that the Codex had originated in Caesarea.
James I died before the Codex was delivered so Charles I accepted the gift in By doing so, he began the fashion of designating Biblical manuscripts by such symbols.
Traditionally, Alexandria Egypt is considered the place of its provenance and is the most probable hypothesis.
Whoever removes it thence shall be excommunicated and cut off. Written by Athanasius the humble. The British theologian and scholar F.
Burkitt however disputed this notion of the Alexandrian origin. He also asserted that the Arabic writing may have been inserted into the Codex between and Burkitt concluded that the Codex was found in Athos but it was written in Constantinople. The presence of the Epistle of Clement indicates that the Codex was in existence or written in a time before the canon was fixed around the time of the Council of Laodicea and the Council of Carthage Codex Alexandrius was written at least a generation after Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus but it may still belong to the fourth century — but it cannot be later than the fifth century.
Codex Alexandrius was considered the best manuscript of the Greek Old Testament in Britain before the download of the Codex Sinaiticus.
Today, it is located in the British Library along with the Codex Sinaiticus. It is believed that the Codex was written in Bohemia, however, the historical origin of the Codex is not known. The text is richly decorated and was completely written by one scribe.
The Book is It remained in the castle until it was taken as booty by the Swedish army during the Thirty Years War. The Swedish army carried the Codex to Stockholm where it became part of the royal library collection of Queen Christina of Sweden. It remained in the royal library until when it entered the newly built National Library of Sweden in Stockholm. It was printed by Johannes Gutenberg in Germany in the s.
The initial preparation for the printing of this Bible began shortly after resulting in the first finished copies becoming available in or In this letter, Piccolomini stated that he had seen several copies of this Bible and that by the time of this letter all the copies had been sold. Due to the cost of the Bible, it is believed that the majority of them were sold to churches and monasteries. The type resembles the frequently used script known as "textura" after the Latin word for "woven" and is closely set in two columns.
It modeled the 36 Line Bible and had an influence on the Clementine edition of the Vulgate that was commissioned by the Papacy in the sixteenth century.
In addition there are 48 fragmentary parts of the original including one copy of the Christian Scriptures only on vellum, a divided copy written on paper, and the Bagford fragment which is an illuminated page.
The Hentenian edition was an earlier attempt at correcting errors that had surfaced in earlier editions of the Latin Vulgate. Consequently Jerome takes this text in the Book of Revelation as authoritatively limiting the Old Testament canon to the 24 books of the Hebrew bible; and in other prologues he sets the '24 elders' of the Hebrew Bible against the 'Seventy interpreters' of the Septuagint .
The 12 minor prophets are counted as one book, 1 and 2 Samuel as one book, 1 and 2 Kings as one book, Ezra and Nehemiah as one book, and 1 and 2 Chronicles as one book, making a total of 24 books.
Alternatively, Ruth is counted as part of Judges, and Lamentations as part of Jeremiah, for a total of 22 books. In addition, many medieval Vulgate manuscripts included Jerome's epistle number 53, to Paulinus bishop of Nola , as a general prologue to the whole Bible. Notably, this letter was printed at the head of the Gutenberg Bible.
The regular prologue to the Pauline Epistles in the Vulgate Primum quaeritur defends the Pauline authorship of the Epistle to the Hebrews , directly contrary to Jerome's own views — a key argument in demonstrating that Jerome did not write it.
The author of the Primum quaeritur is unknown; but it is first quoted by Pelagius in his commentary on the Pauline letters written before ; and as this work also quotes from the Vulgate revision of these letters, it has been proposed that Pelagius or one of his associates may have been responsible for the revision of the Vulgate New Testament outside the Gospels.
At any rate, it is reasonable to identify the author of the preface with the unknown reviser of the New Testament outside the gospels. Adolf von Harnack ,  citing De Bruyne, argued that these notes were written by Marcion of Sinope or one of his followers. Where Vulgate bibles included the Psalter in the Roman version rather than Jerome's Hebraic version this inclusion was occasionally supported by pseudonymous letters between Jerome and Damasus; which subsequently were occasionally attached to Jerome's Gallican Psalter when that supplanted the Hebraic Psalter in the Vulgate in the 9th century.
Many medieval manuscripts also include a pseudonymous prologue from Jerome for the Catholic Epistles , composed to support the interpolated Comma Johanneum at 1 John Jerome himself uses the term "Latin Vulgate" for the Vetus Latina text, so intending to denote this version as the common Latin rendering of the Greek Vulgate or Common Septuagint which Jerome otherwise terms the 'version of the Seventy' ; and this remained the usual use of the term 'Latin Vulgate" in the West for centuries.
Jerome reserves the term 'Septuagint' Septuaginta to refer to the Hexaplar Septuagint. The earliest known use of the term Vulgata to describe the 'new' Latin translation was made by Roger Bacon in the 13th century. The individual books varied in quality of translation and style, and different manuscripts and quotations witness wide variations in readings.
Some books appear to have been translated several times; the book of Psalms in particular having circulated for over a century in an earlier Latin version the Cyprianic Version , before this was superseded by the Old Latin version in the 4th century.
Jerome, in his preface to the Vulgate gospels, commented that there were "as many [translations] as there are manuscripts". The base text for Jerome's revision of the gospels was an Old Latin text similar to the Codex Veronensis ; with the text of the Gospel of John conforming more to that in the Codex Corbiensis.
Hence, "high priest" is rendered princeps sacerdotum in Vulgate Matthew; as summus sacerdos in Vulgate Mark; and as pontifex in Vulgate John. The Vetus Latina gospels had been translated from Greek originals of the Western text-type. Comparison of Jerome's Gospel texts with those in Old Latin witnesses, suggests that his revision was substantially concerned with redacting their expanded 'Western' phraseology in accordance with the Greek texts of better early Byzantine and Alexandrian witnesses.
One major change introduced by Jerome was to re-order the Latin Gospels. It appears that he followed this order in his programme of work; as his revisions become progressively less frequent and less consistent in the gospels presumably done later. Where Jerome sought to correct the Old Latin text with reference to the best recent Greek manuscripts, with a preference for those conforming to the Byzantine text-type , the Greek text underlying the revision of the rest of the New Testament demonstrates the Alexandrian text-type found in the great majuscule pandects of the mid 4th century, most similar to the Codex Sinaiticus.
The reviser's changes generally conform very closely to this Greek text, even in matters of word order; to the extent that the resulting text may be only barely intelligible as Latin. This, Jerome said, he had done cursorily when in Rome; but later disowned this version, maintaining that copyists had reintroduced erroneous readings. Until the 20th century, it was commonly assumed that the surviving Roman Psalter represented Jerome's first attempted revision; but more recent scholarship - following de Bruyne - rejects this identification.
The Roman Psalter is indeed one of at least five revised versions of the mid-4th-century Old Latin Psalter; but, compared to the four others the revisions in the Roman Psalter are in clumsy Latin, and signally fail to follow Jerome's known translational principles, especially in respect of correcting harmonised readings.
Nevertheless it is clear from Jerome's correspondence especially in his defence of the Gallican Pslater in the long and detailed Epistle  that he was familiar with the Roman Psalter text; and consequently it is assumed that this revision represents the Roman text as Jerome had found it. Jerome's translated texts had to make their way on their own merits.
The Old Latin versions continued to be copied and used alongside the Vulgate versions. Commentators such as Isidore of Seville and Gregory the Great Pope from to recognised the superiority of the new version, and promoted it in their works; but the old tended to continue in liturgical use, especially in the Psalter and the biblical Canticles.
But when argumentation is necessary, I use the evidence sometimes of the new translation, sometimes of the old one, since the Apostolic See, over which by God's grace I preside, uses both".
This distinction of "new translation" and "old translation" is regularly found in commentators until the 8th century; but it remained uncertain for those books that had not been revised by Jerome the New Testament outside the Gospels, and certain of the deuterocanonical books , which versions of the text belonged to the "new" translation and which to the "old". The earliest Bible manuscript where all books are included in the versions that would later be recognised as "Vulgate" is the 8th-century Codex Amiatinus ; but as late as the 12th century, the Vulgate Codex Gigas retained an Old Latin text for the Apocalypse and the Acts of the Apostles.
Changes to familiar phrases and expressions aroused hostility in congregations, especially in North Africa and Spain; while scholars often sought to conform Vulgate texts to Patristic citations from the Old Latin; and consequently many Vulgate texts became contaminated with Old Latin readings, re-introduced by copyists.
Spanish biblical traditions, with many Old Latin borrowings, were influential in Ireland, while both Irish and Spanish influences are found in Vulgate texts in northern France. By contrast, in Italy and southern France a much purer Vulgate text predominated; and this is the version of the Bible that became established in England following the mission of Augustine of Canterbury.
