The Holy Bible, Douay-Rheims Translation

Eds. Dennis McCarthy, Tad Book (Permalink)

Cover Image

This text of the Holy Bible, which has long been a favorite of English-speaking readers, was generously and meticulously transcribed into electronic form by Dennis McCarthy of Atlanta, GA, and Tad Book, a student at the Pontifical North American College in Rome. Initially released in 11X6, it was uploaded to Project Gutenberg, where it remains available in multiple formats. This edition, like the original printing of the edition revised and annotated by Bishop Richard Challoner, contains the entire canon of Scripture, along with three apocryphal books, which have been traditionally included in printings of the Bible. Two other books are included in the original English translation and spelling, to give an idea of the nature of Bishop Challoner's revisions. Completely retypeset, this edition is a treasure for any Catholic. 568 pp., English. PDF (free) | HTML (free). .
