Latin Vulgate

The Latin Vulgate was translated from manuscripts that no longer exist today by St. Jerome under the commission of Pope St. Damasus I in 382. Jerome finished this translation in 400.  There had a few editions of the Vulgate since that time. Most noteably the Sixtus edition and the Clementine edition of 1592. The Clementine editions was used from 1592 through 1979, when it was replaced by the Nova Vulgata.
