Any versions of the Vulgata with macrons?

Post by JasonBaker »

I know Luke Ranieri has done the book of John with Macrons and accompanying audio and Latinitium has done the same with the book of Luke, but is anyone aware if an entire Latin Bible can be purchased anywhere that has macrons included?

I am aware that most original Latin works did not include macrons but for an intermediate learner like myself who cares about both vowel length and syllable stress having macrons is a nice help.

As far as I know, Ecclesiastical Latin pronounces every vowel in only one way- its "long form".* So that would explain why the Vulgate does not use macrons.

*My source is Scanlon's Latin Grammar pg. V, but I'm sure you could find other ones as well.
