Overview

The Translation of the Vulgate Collection brings together essential reference texts and translations of the Vulgate Psalter, all at your fingertips. These classic works were especially designed to help you understand the breviary and the Latin liturgy better while growing your knowledge of the ecclesial Latin. With key translations and commentaries that compare the Latin Vulgate with the original Hebrew Psalms—as well as a grammar specifically composed with biblical Latin in mind—these works will help transform your ecclesial Latin studies.

Experience these works in Logos to understand the difference. With a click, look up Latin, Greek, Hebrew, or Aramaic terms in dictionaries you trust.
