Beside recording the Cyropaedia for Librivox, I started also to record the Clementine Vulgate. However, I am perplexed with the preface to the modern edition.
I think it should be Tantum ..., quantum .. as adverbs.Tantus autem Clemens fidem catholicam tutus est opere et sermone, quantus et ipsius Vulgata revelationem Dei ab imminentibus periculis custodivit.
Meaning that as much as Clemens protected the faith etc .etc., so much he preserved etc. etc.
A nominative quantus would refer to how big Clemens was and doesn't make sense to me.
