From our Biblical Heritage Collection comes this historical treasure. This faithful reproduction of The Latin Vulgate from AD 1250 captures the original detail down to the look and feel of the original velum. Included is a biography of the translator and his work.
Jerome's work of nearly 30 years came to be known as the Latin Vulgate, which takes its name from the phrase “versio vulgate”, meaning “the common (popular) version.” His extraordinary work produced a literary masterpiece that was true to the original Hebrew, but proved to be too purified for public acceptance. As others hand-copied the Vulgate, they began to reinstate the apocryphal passages that Jerome had rejected as being extra-Biblical, resulting in a new version of the Vulgate that was not based exclusively on the Scriptures.
The Biblical Heritage Collection contains eighteen facsimile pages of original Bible texts. These precious pages have been lovingly and meticulously reproduced by our skilled technicians. One cannot help but feel an overwhelming debt of gratitude to the men of faith who sacrificed so much to provide us with God’s inspired and preserved Word.
Framed in an attractive and informative format with painstaking attention to detail, each piece presents a brief history of the page itself and the men responsible for its translation.
