More About Tan Books
The Third Plenary Council of Baltimore was an American assembly held in the nineteenth century. Presiding were Archbishop Gibbons, the Apostolic Delegate, in addition to thirteen other archbishops, sixty-one bishops or their representatives, six abbots, and a religious general. Its sessions were held from the ninth of November to the seventh of December, 1884, and were comprised of twelve decrees. The Third Council is most noteworthy for the vigorous Catholic school building campaign which it spawned, commanding all parishes to provide Catholic education. It also produced the popular Baltimore Catechism for schoolchildren.

Reviews - What do customers think about Douay-Rheims New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Translated from the Latin Vulgate?
Basically sound, but ... Jul 31, 2004
This is the classic Roman Catholic Bible, translated directly from the Latin Vulgate. It is in the same type of beautiful English used by Shakespeare.
The actual text is absolutely faithful to the teaching of the Catholic Church, but this particular edition was photocopied rather than typeset. Some pages are so blurry that they can barely be read. When one points this out to the publisher they act as if it doesn't matter.
Otherwise, though, this Bible is printed on excellent paper and is in a very dureable sewn leather binding.
If only they would typeset it - or at least re-phontocopy the clurry pages!
"Good Old Catholic Bible" Oct 26, 2001
The Douay-Rheims New Testament is a faithful word for word translation from Jerome's Latin Vulgate. The style of this edition is thoroughly Latinate and makes this Bible singularly unique. Many words are kept in their original form: neophyte, Paraclete, sancta sanctorum, and archysynagogue. This Bible first appeared in 1582 and was exstensively used in the formation of the King James Version. This Bible is praised for its freedom from discrepancies found in the Greek texts, for its sheer antiquity, and for its defintion at the Council of Trent stating its authenticity.
