Bonifatius Fischer (1915–1997) was a German biblical scholar, textual critic of the Vulgate, and benedictine.

Fischer questioned Jerome's authorship of some parts of the Vulgate New Testament.

In 1951-1954 Fischer prepared the Old-Latin text of the Book of Genesis:

  • Genesis 1:1 – 9:14 (1951)
  • Genesis 9:14 – 27:23 (1952)
  • Genesis 27:23 – 43:22 (1953)
  • Genesis 43:22 – 50:26 (1954).[1]

Fischer examined all known Latin manuscripts of the Gospels written before the 10th century.[2] Fischer participated in preparation of Vulgata Stuttgartiana.
