    Extremely invaluable

    As a devaut Roman Catholic, i believe it invaluable to be able to read the official bible of the Roman Catholic Church: The Latin Vulgate. The Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin completes a regular Latin dictionary such as Cassell's (which i strongly recomend for everyday Latin). Everyday latin dictionaries do not contain words and terms neccessary to understand Church Latin. I strongly recommend the Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin fo all who wish to read Roman Catholic documents.
