The Bible version Douay Rheims is an excellent translation made by a commission of French scholars of the English College in Douai, France.
In competition with the King James Version and other Bibles for English readers coming out during the Reformation, the Catholics decided they needed a new Catholic version, an English translation of the Vulgate for Catholics.
The New Testament was published in Rheims, France in 1582, and the Old Testament was published in 1609 in Douai.
This translation was replaced with a revision made by the Roman Catholic bishop Richard Challoner in 1752.
