You can read the Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible online for research or quick reference.

It is a God-send for being able to copy and paste Bible quotes into your own studies and to be able to read from a tablet or other online device.



The Douay-Rheims Bible has the longest history as the definitive translation of the Latin Vulgate in the English language and it still has the widest approval. Even today there is no denial that it is the Catholic Bible.

For these reasons this is the only Bible that we recommend.

It is also the Bible that the better 1962 Missals use: Fr. Lasance, New Marian, Angelus Press, Baronius. These last two are variations of the old New Marian.

One version of the St. Andrew Missal uses the Douay and the other uses the Confraternity version. The St. Joseph uses the Confraternity (CCD) as well. You'll note that the CCD uses unisex and Anglicized words.
