Human translations - Traductor traditor
  • We should aim to correctly translate and offer this website initially in the Carthusian Order's supported languages external_link, presently: Deutsch external_link| English external_link| Español external_link| Français external_link| Italiano external_link| Português external_link| 한국어 external_link.
  • Translation contributions are thus welcome and could be made available progressively on quies.org.
  • We aim for serious exegetical literal translations; sacrificing the pitfalls of literary translatory reinterpretation, to the necessity of exactitude, and spiritual-theological fidelity, to Saint Bruno's, the Carthusian Order's, experienced charism and original texts. Emulation of the exegetical methodology applied by Émile Osty, p.s.s., might be a sound example of an approach to the human translations, of our documentation.
    • Le chanoine Émile Osty a été qualifié de «génie de la traduction». external_link (Wikipedia)
      • Selon un texte de présentation des différentes versions de la Bible disponibles en français de l'Alliance biblique française : « La remarquable traduction réalisée par le chanoine Émile Osty, représente plus de vingt-cinq ans d’un minutieux labeur. En cours de route, Osty a fait appel à Joseph Trinquet, professeur au grand séminaire de Paris. Cette traduction respecte « jusqu’au scrupule » les textes originaux hébreux, araméens et grecs. Étant l’œuvre d’une seule personne, elle se caractérise par sa grande cohérence : une même expression dans la langue originale est rendue par une même expression en français. Très précise, cette traduction s’efforce aussi de respecter les genres littéraires présents dans les livres bibliques. Utilisant toutes les ressources de la langue française, elle cherche à rendre le côté pittoresque de l’original. D’abondantes introductions et notes techniques font de la Bible Osty-Trinquet un remarquable outil pour l’exégèse. »

  • In the spirit of the 11 guidelines, this website is ..."a means to help some people develop their spiritual life, in the example and with the help of Saint Bruno, must be cleansed:

a.    Avoid unnecessary chatter and discussions that are far from the aim of the CLC.
b.    The ecumenical openness must be conducted according to the norms of the Church and you will exclude any tendency to religious syncretism.
c.    You also avoid to compromise with pressure groups of ideas either integrist or avant-gardist. To the spiritual path in accordance with Saint Bruno, is appropriate great sobriety and modesty, remote from any controversy.
d.    We progress, all together, in the respect of the Magisterium of the Church." (Gd 9)
