A timeless translation that continues to inspire and guide Catholics around the world
The Douay-Rheims Bible has stood the test of time and has been a cornerstone of Catholic tradition for centuries. The purpose of this version, both the text and notes, was to uphold Catholic tradition in the face of the Protestant Reformation which up until the time of its publication had dominated Elizabethan religion. It was an effort by English Catholics to support the Counter-Reformation and to provide an alternative to Protestant translations.
Today, the Douay-Rheims Bible is the standard English translation used by Catholics before the Jerusalem Bible was produced. It predated and influenced the King James Bible. Many believe that it is more accurate than any modern Bible. The Douay-Rheims Bible remains a timeless translation that continues to inspire and guide Catholics worldwide.
This edition, reset in crisp modern font, contains the commentary and notes, and includes ample margins for personal notes.
