GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
Latin term or phrase:v.d.
English translation:vulgo dict(um)
Entered by: Joseph Brazauskas

Latin to English translations [PRO]
Religion / Papal Decree
Latin term or phrase: v.d.
The context is: "Die autem 16 Maii 2003 D.na Mary Chubb, Praeses consociationis civilis v.d. "Association of Catholic Elementary Educators" (A.C.E.E.) . . . ab Exc.mo Justin Rigali eius canonicam postulavit recognitionem."

The 'd' conceivably stands for 'dictum' ('named, called'), but what could the 'v' possibly stand for?

Any help would be immensely appreciated.
