Vulgate:

Editions:

Biblia Sacra Vulgata, ed. Robert Weber and Roger Gryson, 6th ed. (Stuttgart, 2009). Standard edition of Jerome’s Latin version, printed per cola et commata without punctuation. Official online version at bibelwissenschaft.de requires free registration that enables access to many other resources. Another online Biblia Sacra Vulgata version does not specify which edition is used, but makes it possible to toggle back and forth from the Vulgate to the Douay-Rheims translation.

Biblia Sacra iuxta Vulgatam latinam versionem, ed. Benedictines of Abbazia S. Girolamo, 17 vols. (Rome, 1926-87).  Benedictine critical edition commissioned by the Vatican, valuable especially for full listing of variants readings. Consists of the Old Testament and Apocrypha supplemented by the Wordsworth-White critical text of the New Testament.

The Vulgate Bible, Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library (Cambridge MA, 2010- ). Has the Douay-Rheims translation on facing pages. So far the Pentateuch, Prophetical Books, Historical Books, Poetical Books, and New Testament have been published. 

Biblia Sacra iuxta Vulgatam versionem (Madrid, 1953). Late (1590-92) Sixto-Clementine revision of the Vulgate, yet of value for medievalists because it represents a recension close to the later medieval “Paris text” of the Bible.  Original edition: Biblia Sacra Vulgatæ editionis, Sixti Quinti Pontificis Maximi iussu recognita et edita (Rome, 1592).

Two of the best resources for tracing patristic and medieval figural interpretations of biblical words and things are:

Hieronymus Lauretus, Sylva allegoriarum totius sacrae scripturae (London, 1622).  While cumbersome to use due to its format and abbreviated citations of primary sources, this compilation is a valuable index of allegorical meanings attached by patristic and medieval writers to Latin words occurring in the Bible.

Pseudo-Melito, Clavis Scripturae: J.-B. Pitra, Spicilegium Solesmense complectens sanctorum patrum scriptorumque ecclesiasticorum anecdota hactenus opera, 4 vols. (Pars, 1852).  Google Books: Vol.1.

See also Jean-Pierre Laurant, Symbolisme et Ecriture: le cardinal Pitra et la “Clef” de Méliton de Sardes (Paris, 1988). , which includes a text of the Pseudo-Melito Clavis from one manuscript with a French translation.

Medieval:

Friedrich Stegmüller, Repertorium biblicum medii aevi, 11 vols. (Madrid,1950- ). For an analysis of the series, see Kaske, Medieval Christian Literary Imagery, pp. 16-17.  Vol. 1 covers the Bible itself, including apocryphal books; vols. 2-5 cover commentaries by named author; vols. 6-7 cover anonymous commentaries, listed by the cities in which the manuscripts survive; vols. 8-9 are supplements organized the same way as vols. 1-7; vols. 10-11 consist of a register of Initia. Unfortunately no index volume by books of the Bible was every published. The online version allows full-text as well as various field searches; commentaries on specific biblical books can be located by searching the abbreviated title. To search for references to a specific biblical verse use “Volltext,” enter the abbreviated title, and choose “exacter Wortlaut”; if the verse is only one digit, you will get all hits that begin with that digit, so “Gen. 1:1” will return references to Gen. 1.10, 1.11, etc.; try adding a parens after the digit since references are usually in parens: “Gen. 1.1)”.

Major Collections of Texts:

Patrologiae cursus completus, Series Latina [= “Patrologia Latina,” often abbreviated PL or MPL], ed. J.-P. Migne, 221 vols. (Paris, 1844-1880), with a Supplementum, 5 vols., ed. A. Hamann. There are also online copies of individual volumes of the Patrologia. Searchable full-text database (not including the Supplementum): Patrologia Latina Database (Chadwyck-Healey). The PL consists of reprints of early editions of patristic and medieval Christian-Latin texts down to Innocent III. Attributions of texts in the PL are often incorrect and must always be verified by Palémon Glorieux, Pour revaloriser Migne: Tables rectificatives (Lille, 1952), , the PL Supplementum, Dekkers, Clavis Patrum Latinorum, Machielsen,Clavis Patristica Pseudepigraphorum, and reference works such as the Dictionnaire de spiritualité. The elaborate subject indices in vols. 218-221 (which can be browsed online) are still a valuable way to access relevant passages on topics that may not be easy to reduce to database word searches. Note that references are sometimes to the pagination of the original edition reprinted by Migne (in bold type within the text), rather than to the PL column numbers. The Elucidatio in 235 tabulas Patrologiae Latinae (Rotterdam, 1952), is a skeletal index to the PL indices; see also Berlioz, Identifier sources et citations, pp. 279-94 (“L’index des index de la Patrologie latine de Jacques-Paul Migne”).

The Patrologia Latina can also be searched via the free database Corpus Corporum. Repositorium operum Latinorum apud universitatem Turicensem., which allows lemmatized searches.

On the PL see also Kaske, Medieval Christian Literary Imagery, pp. 9-11; Berlioz, Identifier sources et citations, pp. 279-94.

Some Major Named Medieval Exegetes:

The following comprehensive reference works will not be itemized for individual authors, but should always be consulted. For an exhaustive listing of named exegetes see Stegmüller, Repertorium Biblicum, vols. 2-4. For more up-to-date bibliography on editions consult the Repertorium edierter Texte des Mittelalters aus dem Bereich der Philosophie und angrenzender Gebiete A-Z, 2nd ed., ed. Rolf Schönberger et al. (Berlin, 2011). The websites FAMA: Oevres médiévales à success and Biblissima cover most major authors. For some authors one can consult the entry in the Compendium Auctorum Latinorum Medii Aevi, gen. ed. Claudio Leonardi and Michael Lapidge (also available via the Mirabile database). See also relevant entries in the major ecclesiastical dictionaries and encyclopedias listed in the separate bibliography on Medieval Christianity and Ecclesiastical Sources. Searches of the Regesta-Imperii OPAC and Brepols Online will also return many hits. For patristic exegetes and early medieval exegetes always consult Dekkers, Clavis Patrum Latinorum and Gryson, Répertoire, as well as the Mirabile database.

The focus here is on exegetes who wrote biblical commentaries, though a few whose exegesis is found in theological treatises are included when there are studies dedicated specifically to their exegesis. For other medieval theologians see the separate bibliography on Theology and Dogma, which also contains entries for many of the writers below, but with focus on their theological writings instead of their biblical commentaries.
