The Latin Vulgate of St. Jerome, in the edition of Pope Clement VIII (Clementina Vulgata) was proclaimed the official Latin Bible of the Roman Catholic Church after the Reformation. From St. Jerome's time, through the Middle Ages, until vernacular editions were introduced, educated Catholics throughout the world were familiar with the Vulgate. Those familiar with the Douay-Rheims Bible will know that it is one of the most beautiful and accurate Bible translations in English available today, it being a word for word translation of the Clementine Vulgate. Having both Bibles side by side allows us to see exactly where the vernacular translation comes from. Even those with limited Latin skills will be able to follow along, using the Douay-Rheims translation as an aid. The result is a beautiful, captivating read. Size: 8.5 x 11.5

I made a great investment in purchasing this bible and the quality has surpassed the price of the book itself. Not only is it complete scripturally, but also aids in my Latin studies as a primary text source. This bible is heirloom quality that can be handed down to other generations and also makes for a great and useful gift for many occasions. I keep it open on a special stand in my living room and use it when I engage in Catholic Evangelization and Apologetics to visitors. Highly recommended. --Jerald Archer, posted on the website of Ave Maria Radio
This is a beautiful Bible. The edition I have is the fourth impression, being printed in the Philippines in 2013. The cover and spine are nicely ornate, fitting this august and historical edition of the Bible. When you hold this edition, you just have the feeling that you are holding something quite unique and remarkable. It looks and feels sacred, as if one is in possession of a liturgical book from a few centuries back. Yet, it is new and inviting to a new generation of readers. --Timothy McCormick, Catholic Bibles Blog, January 2015
