It is commonly known as the Douay Old Testament. It was issued as two quarto volumes dated and Herbert Surprisingly these first New Testament and Old Testament editions followed the Geneva Bible not only in their quarto format but also in the use of Roman type.
Title page of the Rheims New Testament, transcribed into Modern English "specially for the discovery of the corruptions of divers late translations, and for clearing the controversies in religion. Afterwards it ceased to be of interest to the Anglican church. Although the cities are now commonly spelled as Douai and as Reims , the Bible continues to be published as the Douay—Rheims Bible and has formed the basis of some later Catholic Bibles in English.
Diligently conferred with the Hebrew, Greek and other Editions". The cause of the delay was "our poor state of banishment", but there was also the matter of reconciling the Latin to the other editions. William Allen went to Rome and worked, with others, on the revision of the Vulgate.
The Sixtine Vulgate edition was published in The definitive Clementine text followed in Worthington, responsible for many of the annotations for the and volumes, states in the preface: "we have again conferred this English translation and conformed it to the most perfect Latin Edition. Genesis iii, 15 does not reflect either Vulgate. The Vulgate was largely created due to the efforts of Saint Jerome — , whose translation was declared to be the authentic Latin version of the Bible by the Council of Trent.
While the Catholic scholars "conferred" with the Hebrew and Greek originals, as well as with "other editions in diverse languages",  their avowed purpose was to translate after a strongly literal manner from the Latin Vulgate, for reasons of accuracy as stated in their Preface and which tended to produce, in places, stilted syntax and Latinisms.
The following short passage Ephesians —12 , is a fair example, admittedly without updating the spelling conventions then in use: The Gentiles to be coheires and concorporat and comparticipant of his promise in Christ JESUS by the Gospel: whereof I am made a minister according to the gift of the grace of God, which is given me according to the operation of his power.
To me the least of al the sainctes is given this grace, among the Gentils to evangelize the unsearcheable riches of Christ, and to illuminate al men what is the dispensation of the sacrament hidden from worldes in God, who created all things: that the manifold wisdom of God, may be notified to the Princes and Potestats in the celestials by the Church, according to the prefinition of worldes, which he made in Christ JESUS our Lord.
In whom we have affiance and accesse in confidence, by the faith of him. Other than when rendering the particular readings of the Vulgate Latin, the English wording of the Rheims New Testament follows more or less closely the Protestant version first produced by William Tyndale in , an important source for the Rheims translators having been identified as that of the revision of Tyndale found in an English and Latin diglot New Testament, published by Miles Coverdale in Paris in Consequently, the Rheims New Testament is much less of a new version, and owes rather more to the original languages, than the translators admit in their preface.
Where the Rheims translators depart from the Coverdale text, they frequently adopt readings found in the Protestant Geneva Bible  or those of the Wycliffe Bible, as this latter version had been translated from the Vulgate, and had been widely used by English Catholic churchmen unaware of its Lollard origins. Many highly regarded translations of the Bible routinely consult Vulgate readings, especially in certain difficult Old Testament passages; but nearly all modern Bible versions, Protestant and Catholic, go directly to original-language Hebrew, Aramaic , and Greek biblical texts as their translation base, and not to a secondary version like the Vulgate.
The translators justified their preference for the Vulgate in their Preface, pointing to accumulated corruptions within the original language manuscripts available in that era, and asserting that Jerome would have had access to better manuscripts in the original tongues that had not survived. In their decision consistently to apply Latinate language, rather than everyday English, to render religious terminology, the Rheims—Douay translators continued a tradition established by Thomas More and Stephen Gardiner in their criticisms of the biblical translations of William Tyndale.
Gardiner indeed had himself applied these principles in to produce a heavily revised version, which unfortunately has not survived, of Tyndale's translations of the Gospels of Luke and John.
More and Gardiner had argued that Latin terms were more precise in meaning than their English equivalents, and consequently should be retained in Englished form to avoid ambiguity. However, David Norton observes that the Rheims—Douay version extends the principle much further.
In the preface to the Rheims New Testament the translators criticise the Geneva Bible for their policy of striving always for clear and unambiguous readings; the Rheims translators proposed rather a rendering of the English biblical text that is faithful to the Latin text, whether or not such a word-for-word translation results in hard to understand English, or transmits ambiguity from the Latin phrasings: we presume not in hard places to modifie the speaches or phrases, but religiously keepe them word for word, and point for point, for feare of missing or restraining the sense of the holy Ghost to our phantasie Hierom, that in other writings it is ynough to give in translation, sense for sense, but that in Scriptures, lest we misse the sense, we must keep the very wordes.
This adds to More and Gardiner the opposite argument, that previous versions in standard English had improperly imputed clear meanings for obscure passages in the Greek source text where the Latin Vulgate had often tended to rather render the Greek literally, even to the extent of generating improper Latin constructions.

In effect, the Rheims translators argue that, where the source text is ambiguous or obscure, then a faithful English translation should also be ambiguous or obscure, with the options for understanding the text discussed in a marginal note: so, that people must read them with licence of their spiritual superior, as in former times they were in like sort limited. The translation was prepared with a definite polemical purpose in opposition to Protestant translations which also had polemical motives.
Prior to the Douay-Rheims, the only printed English language Bibles available had been Protestant translations. The translators excluded the apocryphal Psalm , this unusual oversight given the otherwise "complete" nature of the book is explained in passing by the annotations to Psalm that "S. Augustin in the conclusion of his Sermons upon the Psalms, explicateth a mysterie in the number of an hundred and fieftie[. In England the Protestant William Fulke unintentionally popularized the Rheims New Testament through his collation of the Rheims text and annotations in parallel columns alongside the Protestant Bishops' Bible.
Fulke's original intention through his first combined edition of the Rheims New Testament with the so-called Bishop's Bible was to prove that the Catholic-inspired text was inferior to the Protestant-influenced Bishop's Bible, then the official Bible of the Church of England. Fulke's work was first published in ; and as a consequence the Rheims text and notes became easily available without fear of criminal sanctions. Not only did Douay-Rheims influence Catholics, but it also had a substantial influence on the later creation of the King James Version.
The King James Version is distinguished from previous English Protestant versions by a greater tendency to employ Latinate vocabulary, and the translators were able to find many such terms for example: emulation Romans in the Rheims New Testament.
Consequently, a number of the Latinisms of the Douay—Rheims, through their use in the King James Version, have entered standard literary English. You can even spend a minute or two quizzing the group on their knowledge of the related Bible topic. For instance, if you've given them the Apocryphal Books of the Bible word search, ask the class to explain what those are.
Or, if they're working on the Books of the New Testament puzzle, see if any of your students can recite the books of the Bible from memory.

By the way, it doesn't matter if all students don't finish the word search in the alotted time. Just allow them to take the puzzle with them after class but don't allow them to work on it while you are teaching! They can finish it at home. Parents, too, can use these puzzles to get their children more interested in the Bible.
For example, working on the Plagues of Egypt word search naturally makes one wonder about the plagues and may encourage your child to look up or ask about the details. Examining lists of terms from the Bible and then delving into their meanings is a refreshing way to learn more about the Bible. Spend a few minutes on Wikipedia. How to Solve a Word Search I suppose not everyone has solved a word search before, so here's how to do it.
There are a certain number of words hidden in each printable Bible Word Search. The words in each puzzle are listed at the bottom of the puzzle page.
Words can be forward, backward, or at a diagonal. When you find a word, circle the word and cross it out from the list. One helpful technique I often use is to search for double-lettered words first.Browse the site to see all of the Bible study tools available.
