The Latin Vulgate Bible, VUL

The Latin Vulgate is an early 5th century version of the Bible in Latin which is largely the result of the labors of Jerome, who was commissioned by Pope Damasus I in 382 to revise the older Latin translations.  The Latin Vulgate's Old Testament is the first Latin version translated directly from the Hebrew Tanakh rather than from the Greek Septuagint.  It became the definitive and officially promulgated Latin version of the Bible of the Roman Catholic Church.
