Product Description

Catholics looking for a traditional Catholic Bible in English need 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).
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.
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.

    This Bible is put together with fine craftsmanship. It is basically a Catholic translation done in Old English from Jerome's manuscript. The original Old Testament translation is from 1609 (Douay) and the original New Testament translation is from 1582 (Rheims). However, it was revised just like the King James. This revision was done in 1899. The Large Print is excellent. There are some beautiful pictures in this as well. It also has some cross references. If you like Old English Bibles you should pick this one up. It's a very enjoyable read.

    I was a little worried at first about ordering the Douay-Rheims version, but I am so glad I did! I also have another Douay-Rheims bible now (Saint Benedict Press) which is also nice. This bible is beautiful and simple~ The text is precise and clean and easy to read. The pictures in the bible are beautiful black and white engravings~ It seems like a very traditional bible so it would be good for those who want something along those lines. If anyone of you is worried about the wording in the bible (as I was), don't be~ The wording is much more beautiful than the NAB. I thought I wasn't going to like it or it would be hard to understand, but it's not. I actually have a greater love for reading the Word than before~ This is a great bible! I will definitely be purchasing more!

    EXCELLENT!!!!I bought two Douay-Rheims Holy Bibles, Hardcover with Genuine Leather in Black and even had both engraved and the engraving was perfect!! They were also large print Bibles so they are very easy to read and hard to find in this version. We are thrilled with our purchase We are VERY satisfied customers and we will cherish our Bibles forever!!

Q: Is this Bible a hardcover or softcover? I am looking for a softcover Douy Rheims Bible. Leather, bonded leather, that will do, but I do not want a hardcover. Is this Bible a hardcover or not? I notice that the ad doesn't say.


This is a not a hardcover bible, it is genuine leather.

Q: Is this Bible's binding sewn or glued??


The binding on this Bible is sewn.
