About this item
This high-quality edition contains two of the most revered translations of the Bible: the esteemed Douay-Rheims English translation and the traditional Clementine Vulgate. With the two side-by-side, you can easily follow along with the Latin translation participating in the centuries-old tradition of reading Sacred Scripture in its most authoritative translation. This particular edition of the Latin Vulgate was the Bible promulgated in the centuries following the Council of Trent and worked on by the Pope Clement VIII.
This is the perfect family Bible, mixing tradition with accessibility. The Vulgate, together with the Douay-Rheims English translation (long-considered the Catholic gold-standard), provides a grounding for faith-formation in line with the text that the Church has painstakingly preserved throughout Her storied history.
