Michaelangelo was an Italian, and his Bible was the Latin Vulgate. As Trevor
Peterson has indicated, the Vulgate has "horns" at Exodus 34:29b-30:
/Moses... ignorabat quod *cornuta* esset facies sua ex consortio sermonis
Dei. videntes autem Aaron et filii Israhel *cornutam* Mosi, etc./
So Michelangelo was right about this, according to his lights.
Unfortunately, Michelangelo made Moses look uncannily like the golden calf
that Aaron made in Exodus 32:24!
