Product Details

The Douay-Rheims Bible is a faithful translation into English of the Latin Vulgate which St. Jerome translated into Latin from Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic. The translators of the Douay-Rheims Bible took great pains to translate the Vulgate word for word, even if it did not relate with the cultural conversation of the day. They made every effort to maintain the purity and integrity of the original Latin text.

This revision of the Douay-Rheims Bible has been revised by Bishop Richard Challoner in 1752. The revision changed some of the more obscure phrases to make them more applicable to the people in the pews, yet maintained the faithfulness of the Vulgate itself. It became the standard Bible of the Catholic Church until the New American Bible.
