    Ok, well, technically the bible research section is under the WTS research, so I'm putting this under friends so as not to confuse anyone.

    I had tried posting this on a catholic forum but it's not working so since we have so many scholars here, I'll post it here.

    I had promised a friend I would read the catechism (and pray the rosary)(which if any of you have ever really looked into it, is quite beautiful) and I have been slowly. It itself is really interesting to read. However, what I am REALLY intersted in reading are the texts from which several citations are made.

    These texts range over several centuries.

    Now, I'm pretty sure you will have to be fairly familiar with the Catechism to help me out.

    What I want to know, are any of these texts available to be ordered or checked out of the library? I'm sure some of the fairly recent ones within the last century might be, but I am really wondering about those which might date back to like the 6th century.

    Can any of you guys help me out?


    edited to add: I'm a pretty happy little pagan today and tomorrow, I'm not convertin' any time soon

    I am not familiar with English translations but I think many of them might even be available online.

    What texts in particular are you interested in? (look for references and the abbreviation list.)

    Thanks narkissos for responding!

    At the moment the one that keeps popping up is this Dei Verbum. What is it and where is it? It is quoted often and I would like to read some of these quotes in their original context.

    thank you Narkissos. Google, yeah, I'm feeling dumb now.

    I guess I figured it wouldn't be there. I have underestimated the internet for the last time I tell ya! (thanks)
