The Clementine Vulgate was THE official Bible of the Roman rite of the Catholic Church from the late 16th century until just a few years ago, and is still used in the Tridentine (Traditional Latin) Mass. Unfortunately, no one makes one that \"looks\" like a Bible; the few that are made are printed like regular books with paper covers.
I recently purchased a new Douay-Rheims Bible from Baronius Press, and found that this is the best quality Bible I have ever owned. It is bound with Moroccan (not \"bonded\") leather, printed on traditional gilded \"Bible\" paper. It is a digitally-typeset reproduction of an 1899 DRV. Truly a great Bible, especially for around 60 USD. I wrote the good people at Baronius Press to suggest that they produce a Vulgate in like manner, and they responded that, shown enough interest, they would consider doing just that!
Please sign this petition; it will be sent to Baronius Press on 30 September 2005, the feast day of St. Jerome, the Doctor of the Church who originally translated the Sacred Scriptures into Latin in the fourth century.
My name is David Young. I am a Catholic who desires to see the Vulgate and the Latin languauge more widely used, especially in the liturgy of Holy Mother Church, and also in the lives of everyday Catholics like me. I do not work for Baronius Press or for anyone who profits from the sale of their goods.
