Default The Nova Vulgata

I've just completed my article comparing the Gospel of Matthew in the Nova Vulgata, the official Latin Bible of the Church, to the older Clementine Vulgate and the scholarly Stuttgart Vulgate.

I was dismayed and appalled by the decisions of the editors of the Nova Vulgata, especially to abandon the Latin scriptural tradition approved by the Council of Trent, and adopt in its place the critical Greek text of Matthew by the (Protestant) United Bible Societies. The UBS text, and the NV as well, omits over one hundred words from the Gospel, found in the Latin Vulgate, includes at least a couple of whole verses.

See the article for more critical comments about the NV.
