Vulgate?

SALVETE OMNES!
Jeff, I don't know if you have it yet, but what about the Vulgate? It certainly is public domain.
VALETE BENE!

That's up to Jeff, but the Bible is a huge book and it's already been written, scanned, and translated in many places on the Web, so I wouldn't recommend it :shock:

Furthermore I doubt that the text be beneficial to latin learners since there are so many texts better written. It's quite monotonous and annoying.

Its value does not lie in its grammatical beauty. ;)

I would like to see Textkit have as wide a variety of Greek and Latin text as possible. Benissimus is right that it's out there now and we try not to reduplicate content. But if I could find a good reader with line notes, vocab and other instruction content then i would post a Vulgate Latin reader indeed.

Good suggestion.

Thanks,
jeff

How about a Greek-Latin parallel edition of just the NT? I have one and it's so great. I can't figure out the copyright stuff though... it has several dates but the text is in german so I can't tell... but the first date listed is 1906. :)

An interested reader could just about make one from available, already scanned texts on Perseus.

It's generally the latest date you have to look for.

Klewlis, would you mind posting some general information about this edition you have? I mean, the name of the publisher, the name(s) of the editors, etc.? I would like to search bookstores to find a copy of this edition.

By the way, the vulgate is available on the Web here: http://www.sacred-texts.com I'll bet it's available at lots of other sites, too.
