Jerome’s Vulgate represents the summit of Latin patristic biblical scholarship and provides an essential witness to the early Church’s interpretation of Scripture. The Vulgate’s often transparent rendering of the original languages reflects the best Greek and Hebrew manuscripts in circulation in Jerome’s day, making the Vulgate an important resource for textual criticism. Latin scriptural quotations in medieval, Renaissance, Reformation, and modern literature also commonly have their basis in the Vulgate. Dig into this venerable text for yourself—deepen your study of Scripture by encountering the Latin translation that enriched the language and thought of Europe for centuries.

As a Scripture professor at a seminary that employs Latin texts constantly in the classroom and in the liturgy, I want to write a few words, because they have done something that no one (to my knowledge) has done before. I refer to the Lexham Latin-English Interlinear Vulgate, and the even more extraordinary Clementine Vulgate with reverse-interlinear Hebrew and Greek. The importance of Jerome’s Vulgate as perhaps the world’s most influential monument of Latin literature and as a window onto early Hebrew and Greek manuscripts of the Bible can hardly be overstated. With the presentation of these two tools, a new generation of students and scholars can discover the riches of this weighty Latin text in their own language, but also (which I find particularly enlightening) can become more familiar with Jerome’s mind, method, and insights as an early translator of the Hebrew and Greek Bible. Highly recommended.
