The Clementine Vulgate Bible in Print (Beautifully Done)

I was very happy to get a copy in the mail a few days ago of Church Latin Publishing Co's Clementine Vulgate. 

I regularly refer to my copy of the Douay Rheims Bible, but until now, I did not have a copy of the Vulgate. The Vulgate is the official Latin version of the Holy Bible and largely the result of the labors of St Jerome, who was commissioned by Pope Damasus I in 382 A.D. to make a revision of the old Latin translations.

The Clementine Vulgate (Vulgata Clementina) is the edition promulgated in 1592 by Pope Clement VIII of the Vulgate. It was the second edition of the Vulgate to be authorized by the Catholic Church, the first being the Sixtine Vulgate. The Sixto-Clementine Vulgate was used officially in the Catholic Church until 1979 when the Nova Vulgata was promulgated. As traditionalists, we keep the Clementine Vulgate; as such, it should be found in every serious Catholic home.

And this Vulgate is currently in stock and will arrive in time for Christmas! A softcover version of the beautiful Latin Vulgate Bible is also now available for $39.99 plus shipping. Use the Priority Mail option for guaranteed delivery of 3 to 5 days for domestic orders.

It really is a beautiful book and one I recommend!
