The Douay-Rheims Bible was the original translation of Scripture for English speaking Catholics. The New Testament was first published in 1582 by the English College of Rheims, France, while the Old Testament was published in 1610 when the University moved to Douay, another city of France. Translated from Saint Jerome’s Latin Vulgate, it contains the most pure and most genuine passages expressed in eloquent English common during the 16th and 17th centuries. This same text is used during the Liturgy of the Word in the Latin Tridentine Mass. Among the various translations of the Bible, the Douay-Rheims is ideal for those searching for a deeper understanding of Holy Scripture.
First published in 1884 and digitally reproduced in order to ensure an exact duplication of the original text, this new edition in hardback includes the Illustrated Bible Dictionary and a history of the books of the Bible in one volume.
The cover uses the pattern which appeared on the original 1884 edition - a gold cross with rich Catholic symbols patterning the entire front of the cover stamped on burgundy color leather.
