I am wondering where the earliest known existing bible after the Councils of HIppo and Carthage is located? I see on the internet all kinds of old protestant bibles and bibles supposably before the offical Canon was put together. I realize there may be many of them that have patially disintegrated and some that are newer. But, is there a complete Vulgate bible from after the Councils in 393 and 397 AD somewhere still in existence, and where is it?
Even if the bible is not available for public viewing, I would love to be able to site this existing bible to my protestant friends. Ie., this ____ bible is in this ______ place, was produced by these ______ monks, during these ______ years and is now in this ______ Church/place as a way to show/prove the 72 books have been in use by the Catholic Church in it’s current form from this __ year. These 72 books of the Canon have been in use for hundreds of years prior to Luther taking out 7 books (6 and portions of others) out of the Canon and therefore removing portions of Jesus’ teachings for so many Christians.
Gods continued best blessings,
