List of Nova Vulgata Typographical Errors
in the edition at the vatican.va website


Return to the Articles Index

This list applies only to the current Nova Vulgata edition on the vatican.va website

When the list gives only a chapter and verse, then the typo is obvious, usually a space added in the middle of a word, but sometimes the lack of a space between two words. This type of error occurs very frequently, and usually in the first verse of a chapter. When the error occurs in two different words in the same verse, the notation 'x2' occurs after the chapter and verse number. Apparently, whatever automated system was used to put the version into electronic format for the internet also resulted in this type of error.

The next most frequent type of typographical error also appears to be the result of an automated system. An 'e' is sometimes replaced with a 'c', and a capital 'i' (I) is replaced by a lowercase 'l' (L). Typos are particularly difficult to spot in the NV because, like the Fischer Stuttgart, the editors often chose to use the more archaic spelling of various words, including names of persons and places.

When the typographical error is not the presence or absence of a space, the erroneous word or words are in parentheses, followed by the correction.
