Product Description

Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ St. Jerome
Many Catholics are once more discovering the richness of the Church’s traditional versions of the Sacred Scriptures.
The Clementine Vulgate was proclaimed the official Latin Bible of the Church after the Reformation. From St. Jerome’s time, through the Middle Ages, until vernacular editions were introduced, educated Catholics throughout the world were familiar with the Vulgate.
Those familiar with the Douay-Rheims Bible will know that it is one of the most beautiful and accurate Bible translations available today—a word for word translation of the Clementine Vulgate.
Having both Bibles side by side allows us to see exactly where the vernacular translation came from. Even those with limited Latin skills will be able to follow along, using the Douay-Rheims translation as an aid. You’ll see how the Douay-Rheims is a literal translation of the classic Vulgate.
It is a beautiful, captivating read. The Biblia Sacra is not difficult to understand and it doesn’t take much study of Latin to be able to get through the texts passably.
Included in this Bible are Challoner’s notes, and the texts found in the appendix to the Vulgate, namely 3 and 4 Esdras and the prayer of Manasses (in Latin with an English translation). This makes the Bible totally comprehensive and ideal for theology students.
Owning one of these beautiful Bibles will give you great pleasure each time you read it, and ensure that your family is familiar with sacred scripture in Latin as well as English.
Hardcover bound in leather with ornate gold blocked cover and spine. Gilded page edges, head and tail bands and two satin ribbons.
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).  
The text is set in Century Old Style font, size 9pt.

    A fine English/Latin Bible

    In a previous generation such a book would not have been available to the average person. This is a beautiful volume, worthy of the lectern. At 8-1/2" x 11-1/2" x 3" thick this Bible is easier read at a table or desk rather than being held in the hands. The binding of such large books also lasts longer when the book is laid flat instead of being held like a novel. With the English and Latin texts side by side this Bible is an obvious point of entry for someone who is determined to learn Latin. I expect this Bible to last for generations as I intend to take care of it and not subject the binding to undue stresses or abuse. There is a dignity to this Bible that befits the Word of God, and recalls the venerable old Family Bibles of the 19th and early 20th centuries. I purchased this Bible to further my study of Latin, but have decided to only use it while at home. I do not wish to have it banged around and damaged in a book bag or backpack. I would recommend this Bible to anyone who can read Latin or is willing to learn Latin, and who is willing to sit at a desk in order to read it.

    DH/CV English-Latin Bible - a real gem

    My bible study class bought this for our priest, who has been recovering from an illness. We gave it to him last week and he loved it. We waited for him to open it, so we just saw how nice it is. The leather cover is beautiful, and the text on the pages is easy to read. The only negative we could have, was the weight of this bible. It is hefty, but not too heavy to hold while reading. I want to get one of these myself now.
