Vulgate Accents[edit]

Does anyone know why accents were used in the text representing the Vulgate Bible and not the older text? In other words, is there a reason why it isn't consistent? It might give people the impression that Jerome used accents in the text whereas the other did not (which is not the case as far as I know). Does anyone have a problem with me taking the accents off sometime? AliaGemma 22:08, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

The accents are there only because when I cut-pasted the text from the Vulgate to Wikipedia, the accents came with it. I haven't bothered to remove them. You can remove them if you want. Rwflammang 13:28, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Dan Brown[edit]

Umm...the "Da Vinci Code" as a source for the second footnote? Really!?108.20.41.15 (talk) 23:19, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

Look again. The source is a website debunking a famous hoax, which was one of the Da Vinci Code's inspirations. Rwflammang (talk) 00:04, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Itala[edit]

It seems Itala is another name for the Vetus Latina (see for example http://books.google.de/books?id=inMuAAAAYAAJ&pg=PR16&dq=itala&hl=en&sa=X&ei=5UDTT9jaIo7ktQaNy6CRDw&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q=itala&f=false ). Can someone with more knowledge on the subject confirm this and maybe add it to the article, if confirmed?95.90.42.196 (talk) 12:42, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

Original tongues[edit]

"With the publication of Jerome's Vulgate, which offered a single, stylistically consistent Latin text translated from the original tongues,"

I thought that except for the Psalms which he translated two times, I think the rest of the Old Testament was translated from the septuagint no ? In that case the quoted sentence is incorrect...


comparison of Luke 6:1–4[edit]

I don't think that the average Wikipedia reader, such as myself, will know enough latin to make the comparison chart relevant. Maybe add additional columns to paraphrase in English the sense in which each version reads, highlighting the differences?

To what period are the oldest Latin translations dated?[edit]

The entry mentions that the oldest surviving manuscript is from ~350, but of course there is a difference between the age of a manuscript and the age of the text copied. The latter is more interesting and important, so this bit of information should be added to the entry. To my (unprofessional) knowledge, parts of the Vetus Latina at least are dated to the 2nd century. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.206.132.11 (talk) 12:14, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
