Chapter Summary

Included in some of the manuscripts of the collected writings of the Latin land surveyors (the agrimensores) is the "Prophecy of Vegoia". Augustine's wide-ranging, discursive commentaries on each of the Hebrew Bible Psalms (as available to him in Latin translation), the Ennarationes in Psalmos, was composed from 392 to 418 CE.To attempt to explicate a curious usage of a Latin word (canicula) in a late republican Latin text with the aid of a late antique Christian expositor (Augustine) of Latin translations of the Greek Bible text of Psalms prompts an inquiry into the early Christian understanding, and translation, of the Hebrew text of Psalm 77(78).

Keywords: Augustine; Hebrew Bible Psalms; Hebrew text; Latin translations
