Aimara Version

Aimara Version.

In this language, which is spoken in Perni, a Jesuit, Ludovico Bertonio, as early as the year 1612, wrote the history of the life of Christ. Nearly the whole New Test. was translated from the Vulgate into Aimara in 1827 by Dr. Pazos Kanki. This work was conducted under the superintendence of Mr. Thomson, and with the sanction of the British and Foreign Bible Society. Of this translation the gospel of St. Luke, with the Spanish version in parallel columns was issued in 1832 by the British and Foreign Bible Society for the inhabitants of Bolivia. For linguistic purposes see Bertonio, Ate breve de la Lenguas Aymara (1603-1612); Mossbach, Die Inkas- Indianer und das Aymara (1874). (B. P.)
