With this handy bundle you can bring reverse interlinear functionality to your study of the whole Vulgate Latin Bible and read both New and Old Testaments in light of the original languages. See how the Vulgate renders comparable Greek and Hebrew terms into Latin and establishes links between New- and Old-Testament concepts such as ‘grace,’ ‘justification,’ and ‘love.’
Complete morphological analysis of each Latin, Greek, and Hebrew word enables flexible searches that unlock the vocabulary and semantic range of the Latin translation as well as its Greek and Hebrew sources. Read the Scriptures as you have never read them before—look over Jerome’s shoulder and explore the correspondence between his monumental Latin translation and the original languages of the New and Old Testaments.
This collection will download as four resources and includes the following products:
The Clementine Vulgate is a prerequisite resource for this reverse interlinear. The reverse interlinear tool operates as a functionality within the Clementine Vulgate and appears in that resource but does not include it. Don’t have the Clementine Vulgate? Order it today.
The books of Judith and Tobit have no text alignment in this resource, as the versions from which they were translated are not extant.
As a Scripture professor at a seminary that employs Latin texts constantly in the classroom and in the liturgy, I want to write a few words, because they have done something that no one (to my knowledge) has done before. I refer to the Lexham Latin-English Interlinear Vulgate, and the even more extraordinary Clementine Vulgate with reverse-interlinear Hebrew and Greek. The importance of Jerome’s Vulgate as perhaps the world’s most influential monument of Latin literature and as a window onto early Hebrew and Greek manuscripts of the Bible can hardly be overstated. With the presentation of these two tools, a new generation of students and scholars can discover the riches of this weighty Latin text in their own language, but also (which I find particularly enlightening) can become more familiar with Jerome’s mind, method, and insights as an early translator of the Hebrew and Greek Bible. Highly recommended.
