Vulgate Prologue Line Numbers

I’ve just added the line numbers given in the Stuttgart Vulgate manual edition to my translation of all the Vulgate Prologues. There’s no versification of the prologues comparable to that of the Biblical texts, so this is about as standard as such reference can be, at this point. Line numbers are (in my reading) only seldom cited for the Vulgate Prologues, with usual reference being only to the prologue, which runs into the problem of several of the prologues being short and the cited material easy to find in context, but in a number of the lengthier prologues, this is more difficult. Anyhow, I intend to refer to the prologues in some upcoming posts, so I thought I’d share this little ray of sunshine with all my devoted readers, and brighten your days thereby!
