The deposit of faith, the sum total of the truths revealed by God. is to be found in the Sacred Scrip ture and Tradition, for centuries the Church in the West had been the Vulgate: now if the Vulgate erred in matters of faith and morals, the Church must also necessarily err. which is unthinkable in view of the Church's infallibility.

Work Began In 1944 Since 1944 a group of American Catholic scholars headed by Bishop O Hara has been at work on a translation of the Old Testament which will incorporate the new knowledge. As the first fruits of the work, and to invite criticism and suggestions, Genesis was pub lished in 1948 and the Psalms in 1950. Now. to coincide witn the Guten berg celebration, the first volume of the definitive edition containing the Old Testament from Genesis to Ruth is to be released. The rest of the Old Testament will appear in 1954. to be followed in due course by the New Testament translated from the original Greek.
