I like it. It is very good and very faithful to the latin text (for it is,
if I recall correctly, a translation of the Vulgate). It appeared first in
French, and then in English. Of course the draw back is that it is a
translation of a translation of a translation; i.e.

greek > latin > french > english

But I still like it.
