Latin was the official language used in the Roman Catholic Church hundreds of years ago to write scripture, and is still recited today in the Roman Catholic Church. Commonly called a "dead language" due to the supposed death of all the original adherents.

Latin was a living language when they were getting started. Eastern Christianity mostly used Greek. Part of the reason for the Great Schism is that they had trouble translating theological concepts between Latin and Greek. Martin Luther translated the Bible from Latin into German.
