The Vulgate Bible was used from the early Middle Ages through the twentieth century in the Western European Christian (and, later, specifically Catholic) tradition. This volume elegantly and affordably presents the text of the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible, beginning with the creation of the world and the human race, continuing with the Great Flood, God’s covenant with Abraham, Israel’s flight from Egypt and wanderings through the wilderness, the laws revealed to Moses, his mustering of the twelve tribes of Israel, and ending on the eve of Israel’s introduction into the Promised Land. This is the first volume of the projected five-volume set of the complete Vulgate Bible.
