The New Testament books were also divided into portions of various lengths under “different names, such as titles and heads or chapters.” “In modern times this ancient example was imitated, and many attempts of the kind were made before the existing division into chapters was fixed. The Latin Bible published by Cardinal Hugo of St. Cher in A.D. 1240 is generally regarded as the first “Bible that was divided into our present chapters, although it” appears that some of the chapters were fixed as early as A.D. 1059. This division into chapters came gradually to be adopted “in the published editions of the Hebrew, with some few” “variations, and of the Greek Scriptures, and hence of other” versions.
