18Versions of the Vulgate Clementine Vulgate ( s)Nova Vulgata (1907- ~)Stuttgart Vulgate (1969- ~)
19Clementine VulgateAfter the Reformation, the Church of Rome attempted to standardize the overall text of the Vulgate.The actual first authorized text was sponsored by Pope Sixtus V ( ), known as the Sistine Vulgate.But soon it was repudiated by the next pope, Clement VIII ( ) who ordered a new edition.Clementine Vulgate became the standard Bible text of the Catholic Church until 1960s.
20Nova VulgataIn 1907, Pope Pius X commissioned the another version of the Vulgate, called the Nova Vulgata.Is currently the official Latin version published and approved by the Roman Catholic Church.It takes account of the modem textual criticism of recent years.It doesn’t contain the book that are considered apocryphal.e.g. the 3rd and 4th Book of Ezra
21Stuttgart VulgateAnother version of the Vulgate published by the German Bible Society, based in Stuttgart.The edition, also called Biblia Sacra Vulgata is mainly a scholar work, seeks to reproduce the original text. It provides variant readings from the diverse manuscripts and printed editions of the Vulgate.Its spelling retains a more medieval Latin orthography than the Clementine. But its sparse, unpunctuated text can be difficult to read.It is the one most disseminated on the Internet. This electronic version is usually mutilated, lacking all formatting, notes, prefaces and apparatus.

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. 1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 1:7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
