Subject: Electronic Vulgate from PHI

My institution received a letter from the Packard Humanities Institute
a few weeks ago which says that their Latin CD ROM #5 is now ready for
shipment. It contains "several versions of the Bible (the Septuagint,
Hebrew Bible, Coptic New Testament, Latin Vulgate Bible, King James and
RSV Bibles)." The license fee is $40/yr., $100/3 yrs. The letter notes
that some earlier releases of software to use the cdroms wll not work with
this disk because of a new file structure.

The Packard Humanities Institute's bitnet address is xb.m07@stanford.

There are lots of Vulgates wandering around. The PHI is one of them. On
CD-ROM there is also the FABS Reference Bible (FABS International, De Funiak
Springs, FL 32433). I have used and demonstrated this one and found it
satisfactory. There is also a review of it in Offline (about 29 or 30), but
not of the Vulgate. It is also available from Hermeneutika (PO Box 98563,
Seattle, WA 98198). Hermeneutika also has the CCAT (now out of print) Vulgate
available. Perhaps Bob Kraft will tell us more when he returns.
