The history of translation would not be the same without the existence of the Bible.
Many practices that are implemented nowadays for translations originated centuries ago as monks tried to translate the holy texts into every possible language.
On the image, you can see a carving that represents a monk inspired by an angel while translating a biblical text from Hebrew to Latin.
The inscription reads: «אבינו שבשמים יהקדיש שמך» (Avinu shebashamáim iheakdísh shimjá), meaning, “Our Father who [art] in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.»
It is dated at least 1500 years old, showing us the importance of translators even in the depths of the Dark Ages.
