St Jerome and Pope Saint Pius X

In May 1907, Pope Saint Pius X announced his intention that there should be a revision of the Latin Bible.

In 1909, The Times reported on the work of the Biblical Commission which had been commissioned by the Pope to carry out the revision.

The commission was headed by Abbot Gasquet, the President of the English Benedictines.

The article from The Times below discusses the magnitude of the work undertaken by the Commission.
