Excerpt from The Religion of the Scriptures: Papers From the Catholic Bible Congress Held at Cambridge, July 16-19At the time when this preface must be written the Catholic Bible Congress at Cambridge is still in the future. Its essential character is that of a religious celebration in honour of the fifteenth centenary of St. Jerome, the great biblical doctor of the Latin rite, as St. John Chrysostom was that of the Greek; the former especially eminent in work upon the Old Testament, the latter in work upon the New, the former powerful in work as a pioneer of Western asceticism, the latter glorious for all time as the model of the Christian preacher. The present is a time especially opportune for honouring St. Jerome, seeing that his great work, the Latin Version of the Bible known as the Vulgate, is about to renew its youth, brought forth in primitive accuracy through the learned labours of Cardinal Gasquet and the Benedictine commission. The Vulgate, in origin and revision, will be one of the dominating thoughts of the Congress, and in this little book receives a full meed of praise from one competent to bestow it.But a more profound purpose underlies the Congress. With Pope Leo XIII.'s issue of the encyclical Providentissimus Deus in 1893 began a new era for Biblical studies in the Church, which from that time have made steady advance, ever deepening and widening their course.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
