- [capitalized] Of or pertaining to the Vulgate, or old Latin version of the Scriptures.
- n. The Latin version of the Scriptures accepted as the authorized version of the Roman Catholic Church. It was prepared by Jerome about the close of the fourth century, partly by translation from the original, partly by revision of prior Latin versions. The Vulgate gradually came into general use between the sixth and the ninth century. The Anglo-Saxon translations were made from it and Wyclif's English version, while other English versions from Tyndale's onward have been much influenced by it. The Vulgate was the first book printed (about 1455). The Council of Trent ordered that the “old and vulgate edition,” approved by the “usage of so many ages,” should be the only Latin version used in “public lectures, disputations, sermons, and expositions.” Authorized editions were afterward published under Sixtus V. in 1590 and Clement VIII. in 1592 The latter, or Clementine edition, is the present accepted standard of the Roman Catholic Church, and is the basis of the Douay Bible. The religious terminology of the languages of western Europe has been in great part derived from or inlluenced by the Vulgate.
