Editorial Reviews

Review

"Originally edited by Robert Weber in 1969 and revised for the fourth (1994) edition by Gryson, this is the standard critical edition of the Latin version of the Bible, the Vulgate. Manuscript readings are duly noted in the apparatus, and the two versions of the Psalms are printed on facing pages (with the left page going the Gallican Psalter, the one commonly associated with the Vulgate version). Noteworthy is the fact that the third and fourth books of Esdras are included in this edition, and placed after the Neu Testament (3 Esdras Vulgate = 1 Esdras Septuagint; 4 Esdras Vulgate = 2 Esdras Septuagint). --Recommended as a standard resource for biblical study.

I'm a new student of Latin, and not an expert on the Vulgate, so take my review for what it's worth. As far as I can tell, there are three versions of the Vulgate in print today, and I have copies of all three of them. So I thought that perhaps those who don't want to buy three versions might appreciate a neophyte's impression of their relative strengths and weaknesses. The full names on the title pages are rather long, so I'll refer to these three versions briefly as the Stuttgart Vulgate (Biblia Sacra iuxta vulgatam versionem), the New Vulgate (Bibliorum Sacrorum nova vulgata editio or Novum Testamentum Latine), and the Madrid Clementine (Biblia Sacra iuxta Vulgatam Clementinam).

The Stuttgart Vulgate is a compact one-volume digest of the big multi-volume critical editions, especially the Benedictine Old Testament and Wordsworth and White's New Testament. It comes with a critical apparatus showing the more important variant readings from the Latin manuscripts and editions. This version comes with the prologues of St Jerome, the old medieval critical apparatus of the Gospels (canones evangelorum), the apocryphal books of III and IV Ezra, Psalm 151, Prayer of Manasses, and the Epistle to the Laodiceans, as well as the protocanonical and deuterocanical books. It also contains two complete Psalters, both by St. Jerome: The Psalterium Gallicanum and the Psalterium juxta Hebraicum. The two psalters are laid out side-by-side on facing pages to facilitate comparison. This version attempts to reconstruct the experience of reading a medieval manuscript, so the spelling is medieval, which can be a problem for anyone used to the Clementine, and to anyone looking up words in a dictionary.

I am not Roman Catholic. I bought the book to enhance my knowledge of Ecclestiastical Latin. It is my most prized possession. I am prersently reading it from cover to cover for the fourth time. It affords wonderful insight into the history and attitudes of an almost forgotten world. The Bible in ancient script is considerably more raw and entertaining. Some passages are incredibly beautiful. Read at your own peril.

This book is, quite obviously, great. Its biggest fault is that the pages are far too thin and fragile; it would have been better had it been published with a greater length and width so as to allow for thicker paper. The symbols showing different manuscript sources are also sometimes a bit too ubiquitous, and choke the text itself. But I like that the text maintains the old manuscript look (little punctuation, etc.), whereas I think the Vatican copies's texts probably look more modern.

A great buy.

In addition to this superb edition of the Vulgate (which I always refer to when translating from the Greek), I also possess the authorized edition from the Holy See (which seems to be currently out of print. Presumably the number of Latin scholars among the Catholic clergy has declined somewhat from the peak of 50 years ago). This Papal edition does not have Psalm 151 or Laodiceans, but prints (and in very small print at that) the Prayer of Manasseh and 3 and 4 Esdras as an appendix. The scholarship in both books is impeccable. And of course I referred to them both (the text seems to be almost identical, but the notes, of course, vary considerably) when translating the original portions of 4 Esdras for inclusion in BIBLE WISDOM FOR MODERN TIMES: Selections from the Orthodox Old Testament. 4 Esdras (or 2 Esdras as it is titled in the King James Version and the RSV) is not available in its original Hebrew (nor in a Greek translation either, for that matter) but only in Latin, Syriac, Ethiopic, Arabic and Armenian. The King James translators, of course, used Jerome's Latin Vulgate which they adhere to very closely.

The book is fine. The only thing I find not meeting my expectation is that the size of the letter font is quite small. The book may be fine to young people but not recommended to old people in their fifties and later that have deteorating eyesights.

Most other editions "correct" the Latin readings from modern critical Greek and Hebrew/Aramaic editions. In contrast, this is a semi-critical reconstruction of a translation into Latin (mostly by Jerome) from manuscripts that were older than any that are now known. As such, it is an independent witness to the original readings of the Scriptures, complementing critical editions in Greek or Hebrew/Aramaic.

Catholic readers looking for a Latin edition that is official for use in Roman rites should purchase The Nova Vulgata (Bibliorum Sacrorum nova vulgata editio), also known as the Neo-Vulgate, which is the text included in the Nestle-Aland Greek-Latin edition of the New Testament.

The Vulgate contains books that were reputedly included in spite of Jerome's personal objections to them. While those books are considered noncanonical, either by Protestants or by both Protestants and Catholics, they help provide background for our understanding of the other books.

This edition's textured hard binding appears to be substantial, but it font is fairly small, and its paper is extremely thin and very fragile.
