The original Vulgate Bibles were produced in manuscript, from Saint Jerome's original fifth century translations from the best Greek translations of the Hebrew Bible. Printed throughout Europe during the late C16th in the midst of the Counter-Reformation. An authorised version was promulgated during the Counter-Reformation, and the Clementine Vulgate of 1592 became the standard biblical text of the Roman Rite of the Roman Catholic Church, until it's replacement after Vatican II in the late Twentieth Century.
