Bible translations (Catalan)

Bible translations (Catalan)

The first complete Catalan bible translation was produced between by the Catholic Church, between 1287 and 1290. It was entrusted to Jaume de Montjuich by Alfons II of Aragon. Remains of this version can be found in Paris ("Bibliothèque Nationale"). Also, in the same French library, we can find another translation into Catalan, which Jaume II of Aragon received on November 23rd, 1319.Fact|date=November 2007

In the early fifteenth century appeared another whole Bible translation by Bonifaci Ferrer. In 1490 a psalter by Joan Roís de Corella came to light in Venice. The Catalan Bible by Bonifaci Ferrer was printed before any Bible was printed in English or Spanish, in 1478.Fact|date=November 2007

The prohibition, in Spain and other Catholic countries, of vernacular translations, along with the decline of the Catalan language until its renaissance in the nineteenth century, explains why there were no translations into Catalan from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century.cite web | title=The Bible in the Renaissance - William Tyndale| publisher=Dom Henry Wansbrough | url=]

In 1832 a Catalan exiled in London, J.M. Prat Colom, sponsored by the British and Foreign Bible Society, translated the New Testament ("Lo Nou Testament de nostre Senyor Jesu-Christ"), which was published afterwards in Barcelona (1836) and Madrid (1888).Fact|date=November 2007
