Vulgate Verse: Beati pauperes

I've posted a commentary about a Vulgate verse today over at my blog, where you will find a discussion of the First Beatitude as found in the gospel of Luke:

Luke 6: Beati pauperes, quia vestrum est regnum Dei.

Here is an image of the "Blessing Christ" from a medieval manuscript, c. 1200.
