[quote=Loy]Erasmus assembled a Greek-Latin bible. The Latin was his interpretation, not the official Vulgate. The Greek part of this bible is very easy to find on the web.
Does anyone know if the Latin text of his bible is posted on the internet?
I’m also having difficulty locating a hard copy of his bible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
God bless you all!
Here are a few editions that are currently available. Problem is - they’re a bit pricey :bigyikes:
