The Douay-Rheims was completed in 1609; the Rheims New Testament was published nearly thirty years earlier, in 1582. The Douay-Rheims Bible is the most beautiful and traditional Catholic Bible in English, translated from the Latin Vulgate, a version universally used in the Church for over 1500 years. The first ever digitally typeset edition with newly redrawn color maps, beautifully bound in with gilt edges. Approximately 6 x 8.5″.
The Old and New Testaments from the 1899 edition. 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. The text is set in the classic Century Expanded font, which was originally used in the 1899 edition, and has been lovingly typed line by line to represent exactly the original edition. The Family Register pages have also been digitally typeset and redrawn.
