The lost letters of the Vatican Dictionary

The Vatican Insider has published an online Vatican dictionary. The site promises that you can understand your faith's terms from "A divinis" to "Zucchetto"!

I substituted for “j” in early Latin (Iesu, rather than Jesu, for instance). Perhaps “iuris” should be checked.
