Rheims New Testament
This copy of the Rheims New Testament is a first edition published in Rheims, France, in 1582. This translation was the first foray of the Roman Catholic Church into the battle for a dominant English language version of the Bible in the 16th century, all of which culminated in 1611 with the completion of the paramount English language Bible, the King James Version. The Roman Catholic English Old Testament, called the Duoai because it was translated at the Roman Catholic College in the city of Douai, France, was completed in 1609. The combined project is now commonly referred to as the Rheims-Douai Version.
