Vulgate Bible [(vul-gayt)]

A Latin translation of the Bible made by the scholar Jerome, a saint of the Roman Catholic Church, in the fourth century. This translation was the standard Bible of the Western world until the Reformation. Vulgate comes from a Latin word meaning “common,” because Jerome's translation used the Latin of everyday speech.
