The most beautiful and traditional Catholic Bible in English! The first ever digitally typeset edition with newly redrawn colour maps, beautifully bound in leather with gilt edges.

This edition brings together the very best of three Douay-Rheims Editions:

The Old and New Testaments - from the 1899 edition published by John Murphy Company, Baltimore, Maryland. Imprimatur: James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore.

The Old and New Testaments and Historical and Chronological Index have been beautifully retypeset, faithfully to reproduce the original 1899 Gibbons edition. No one can fault the quality and authenticity of the Douay-Rheims Bible, but all previous editions have had to compromise on the quality of the text printing. Not so with this new edition, which takes advantage of the very latest in digital technology to ensure that throughout the Bible, the text is always crystal clear.

No more blotches or scratched out text, making you wonder what is being said. In fact, this is the first time ever that the Douay-Rheims has been digitally typeset! Both the Old and New Testaments and Historical and Chronological Index have been lovingly typeset line by line in the classic Century Expanded font, which was used in the 1899 original, thus faithfully reproducing the original edition.

The Family Register pages have also been digitally typeset and redrawn.

Engravings - These beautiful engravings recreate key moments in Biblical History. In this edition, all thirty-two engravings from the 1941 edition published by The Douay Bible House, New York, have been carefully remastered and enhanced. Imprimatur: Francis J. Spellman, D.D., Archbishop of New York.

These thirty-two beautiful engravings have been scanned and digitally retouched, and their captions have been retypeset and corrected to match the appropriate verses in the Bible text.

Maps - When creating this edition of the Holy Bible, modern maps were not considered suitable, and so an artist was commissioned to reproduce the eleven beautiful maps from the 1911 edition published by Wm. Aleiter Co., Catholic Supply House, Indianapolis. Imprimatur: John Cardinal Farley, Archbishop of New York.

  • SPIRITUS PARACLITUS - Encyclical of Pope Benedict XV - On St. Jerome

    Catholics looking for the traditional Catholic Bible in English should look no further!

    The Douay-Rheims Bible is an English translation of the Latin Vulgate Bible, a version universally used in the Church for over 1500 years, itself meticulously translated from the original Hebrew and Greek by St. Jerome (A.D. 340-420).

    In 1546, the Council of Trent declared the Latin Vulgate Bible as authentic, and declared that “No one (may) dare or presume under any pretext whatsoever to reject it” (4th Session, April 8, 1546).

    In 1943, Pope Pius XII stated that the continuous use of the Vulgate Bible in the Church for many centuries showed that it was “free from any error whatsoever in matters of faith and morals” (Divino Afflante Spiritu (1943), paragraph 21).

    In 1749-1752, Bishop Challoner, knowing that many English Catholics were reading distorted Protestant versions of the Bible such as the King James Version (KJV), made major revisions to the Douay-Rheims version, to improve its readability without diminishing its accuracy.

    The revised Douay-Rheims Bible has been approved by the Church many times over, including the approbation of Cardinal Gibbons for the 1899 edition that Baronius Press is publishing.

    For over 300 years, the Douay Rheims Bible was the only Catholic English translation of Scripture used. It continues to be used officially in Catholic churches today.

    Many anti-Catholics accuse the Church of having hidden Scripture from the faithful by refusing to translate it into the vernacular tongue. The Douay-Rheims was completed in 1609, and is therefore older than the King James Version, the oldest Protestant translation still in use, which was published in 1611. The Rheims New Testament was published nearly thirty years earlier, in 1582.

    Further, the translators of the KJV make specific reference to the Douay version in their translators’ preface. It is commonly acknowledged that, in preparing the KJV, the translators made use of the Rheims New Testament and adopted many of its readings in preference to those of other English editions.

    Since it was translated quite literally and with great reverence for each individual word from the Vulgate, which in turn reflects the structure of the original languages very clearly, the Douay-Rheims Bible can give great insight into the minds of the sacred authors. The notes, written by Bishop Challoner are entirely faithful to the teachings of the Holy Catholic Church.
