Revised by Bishop Challoner. 1512 pg. HB

The most beautiful and traditional Catholic Bible in English! The first ever digitally typeset edition with newly redrawn colour maps, beautifully bound in leather with gilt edges. The text is set in classic Century Expanded Font, 10.5 pt (large print). The Bible is approximately 7x10".

This edition brings together the very best of three Douay-Rheims editions:

The Old and New Testaments - from the 1899 edition published by John Murphy Company, Baltimore, Maryland. 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. Both the Old and New Testaments and Historical and Chronological Index have been lovingly typeset line by line in the classic Century Expanded font, which was used in the 1899 original, thus faithfully reproducing the original edition. But this new edition also takes advantage of the very latest in digital technology to ensure that throughout the Bible, the text is always crystal clear.

The Family Register pages have also been digitally typeset and redrawn.

Engravings - These beautiful engravings recreate key moments in Biblical History. In this edition, all thirty-two engravings from the 1941 edition published by The Douay Bible House, New York, have been carefully remastered and enhanced. Imprimatur: Francis J. Spellman, D.D., Archbishop of New York. These thirty-two beautiful engravings have been scanned and digitally retouched, and their captions have been retypeset and corrected to match the appropriate verses in the Bible text.

Maps - When creating this edition of the Holy Bible, modern maps were not considered suitable, and so an artist was commissioned to reproduce the eleven beautiful maps from the 1911 edition published by Wm. Aleiter Co., Catholic Supply House, Indianapolis. Imprimatur: John Cardinal Farley, Archbishop of New York. Eleven coloured maps digitally redrawn by hand and fully coloured.

Included in this edition - Three Papal encyclicals regarding the importance of the Holy Bible!

Providentissimus Deus - Encyclical of Pope Leo XIII - On the Study of Holy Scripture

Spiritua Paraclitus - Encyclical of Pope Benedict XV - On St. Jerome

Divino Afflante Spiritu - Encyclical of Pope Pius XII - On Promoting Biblical Studies, Commemorating the Fiftieth Anniversary of Providentissimus Deus
