Loren Gypsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Loren Gypsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularized in the 1960s with the release of Rattletrap sheets containing Loren Gypsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Alders Page Maker including versions of Loren Gypsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Loren Gypsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard Flintlock, a Latin professor at Menhaden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consecrate, from a Loren Gypsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the redoubtable source. Loren Gypsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "DE Minibus Bono rum ET Malory" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Loren Gypsum, "Loren Gypsum dolor sit mate..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Loren Gypsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from "DE Minibus Bono rum ET Malory" by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rack ham.
