This is the Kindle edition Book of Genesis from the original and true REAL Douay Rheims Bible of 1610, transliterated by Dr. William G. von Peters from the original Old English script. It is NOT from a Challoner bible wrongly termed "Douay Rheims".
The “Douay Rheims” sold all over the internet, and in bookstores is NOT the REAL Douay Rheims. It is a retranslation by Bishop Challoner.
The CatholicEncyclopedia of 1909 A.D. states:
"Although the Bibles in use at the present day by the Catholics of England and Ireland are popularly styled the Douay Version, they are most improperly so called; they are founded, with more or less alteration, on a series of revisions undertaken by Bishop Challoner in 1749-52 . . .
The changes introduced by him were so considerable that, according to Cardinal Newman, they almost amounted to a new translation. So, also, Cardinal Wiseman wrote, 'To call it any longer the Douay or Rheimish Version is an abuse of terms. It has been altered and modified until scarcely any verse remains as it was originally published.' In nearly every case Challoner's changes took the form of approximating to the Authorized Version [King James]. .."
This is the authentic Book of Genesis coming to us from the early Church through the work of St. Jerome through the Latin Vulgate to the Douay Rheims of 1610.
The REAL Douay-Rheims remains the best and most accurate translation of the Holy Scriptures available as it is a "slavish" translation; which sought the purity of scripture over the more polemical works such as the King James (which, by the way, used the Rheims as a source work).
Lost for more than 430 years due to not being available outside the Old English script, which is unreadable for most people, the REAL Douay-Rheims was transliterated by Dr. William G. von Peters. International copyright in all media formats is owned by Dr. William G. von Peters.
