New HARDCOVER edition, in large format.

Biblia Sacra juxta Vulgatam Clementinam by Michael Tweedale  740 pages

Original year of publication: 2005

Offered here is a complete edition of the Clementine Vulgate in a large format. This volume contains the complete Latin Vulgate Bible in a newly re-typeset format, composed by Michaeal Tweedale at  Vulsearch. At 8 1/2" by 11", this edition will be a bit easier to read than the 6" by 9" edition since the font is rather small. I developed this large format edition to be coupled with theBiblia Sacra Latin Course, so that students may have a resource directly at their fingertips for reading and studying the Vulgate. It can be purchased at a discounted price when packaged with the course.

To own this facsimilied set of the Douay Rheims is an honor; I'm proud of this particular english translation because , for some reason, it literally feels holier than the numerous translations out there. Per the physical attributes of the set, the hardcover binding is sturdy and very well made, the entire set is heavy but it's worth the heft due to the letter-sized pages, which are standard 20 lb. pages, not the flimsy sheets usu. found in bibles.
If I were a demon, I wouldn't want Catholics (or anybody for that matter) reading this translation since it just feels like that much of a weapon against evil, which is what every Bible should be. God bless always

Wanted to let you know I received my five Douay-Rheims Bibles. I have started reading the
Old Testament and I'm really enjoying reading it. Before ordering these bibles from you
several people had told me they thought these Bibles would be too difficult to read since they were originally written in Old English. I have to say this is definitely not true. After getting used to
the Old English style, which really is not that difficult to do, these bibles are very understandable.
Further, the Bibles are beautifully printed. A blessing to read. Thank you so much for bringing the true and original Douay-Rheims Bibles back to us. I feel in some ways that God directed me to
your website to find these treasures. Thank you also for your fantastic customer service.
Your replies to my questions we're always quick and detailed. I really appreciated this.
May God bless you and your work.

Ave,
    First, thank you for making this Bible available.  The CD arrived only a couple of days after I placed my order, and the 5 volumes of the Bible arrived in less than a week.  Great service.  I am sorry I didn't contact you sooner but I have been too busy enjoying my new Bible.  Thanks again and keep up the great work.

If it's given any thought at all by English-speaking Catholics, the original Douay Rheims is usually dismissed as being unreadable.  After spending several weeks with it, I can confirm this reputation is undeserved.  On the contrary, I find the translation clear and precise; it benefits greatly by tracking so closely to the Latin of the Vulgate.  I prefer this translation to Bishop Challoner's mislabeled "revision", which takes as much from the King James as from the original DR, and ends up being less aesthetically pleasing than either.

Regarding this particular facsimile, it is excellent.  The print is large and easy to read.  The orthography is initially strange, but it did not take me long to become accustomed to it.  However, the marginal notes and end-of-chapter annotations are in small print -- even in this oversize format -- and can be difficult to read.  Having said that, they are very much worth the effort needed to decipher them.  Written during the Counter-Reformation in response to Protestant heresies, it is a mistake to think these notes have lost any relevance with the passage of time.  On several occasions already the notes have shed light on passages that have puzzled me for years.

In sum, the original DR is the best English version of The Holy Bible I have yet encountered.  It is a shame that it has languished in obscurity for almost four centuries.  I would very much like to see this reprinted by an established publisher, with updated orthography but otherwise unchanged (and with the notes intact).  Until that day arrives, this facsimile edition comes highly recommended.

Maximus,
 
Here is my quite tardy testimonial.  Mea culpa.  I am enjoying the D-R Bible quite a bit, and am incorporating it into my daily reading and worship quickly.  Thanks again.
 
"When one hears the words "facsimile edition", one immediately thinks of nearly unreadable Shakespearean folios or a set of Paradise Lost.  This edition of the Douay-Rheims Bible has none of these flaws.  There are a few fuzzy spots and glitches, but this is head and shoulders the best facsimile edition I've ever seen of any book of antiquity.  Also, the publisher has done the Catholic Church a huge favor by bringing the D-R back into print.  At last, one can read the original Catholic Bible as it was translated into English from the Vulgate.  Any serious student of the Bible, or any Catholic interested in the true English translation owes it to himself or herself to get and read this bible.

(This comment is referring to the CD ROM only)

 I’ve been enjoying the CD very much.  Once one gets into the groove of reading that font, etc., the reading flows effortlessly.  And it doesn’t take all that long to get accustomed to it.  I was reading their notes for St. Thomas of Canterbury today and learned a lot from them.

(After his printed edition arrived, W.A. made this comment)

The Douay Rheims arrived last Tuesday, the 20th, and I have been enjoying it ever since.  They are indeed beautiful.  The study notes alone are worth the price of the volumes.  I have been using them in my daily devotions.  The print is clear and legible, the binding strong.  Best of all from a practical standpoint, the division into five volumes makes reading and studying very manageable because no volume is too bulky or awkward to hold.  Thank you so much for reprinting them.

Learn Latin with Fr. Diamond

Liturgical Latin, Church Latin and Your Missal by Fr. Wilfrid Diamond  346 pages

Original year of publication: 1941
Reprinted in the year: 2007

Fr. Diamond's excellent book for Learning the Latin of the Church was developed primarily from a correspondence course he taught to more than 400 individuals in the United States and 15 foreign countries.  The diversity of this group is astounding- "...used in over 50 high schools ...Carmelite Nuns, seminarians, Marist Brothers, doctors, housewives, and other lay people...". This book was desingned to be used by the average person, and the vocabulary is taken directly from the liturgy, not from "Caesar or Cicero" as the foreward to the book so prouldy states. Includes a small glossary.  Also see our other listing for Liturgical Latin, A Textbook and Dictionary which combines this book and Dictionary of Liturgical Latin also by Wilfrid Diamond, which has over 11,000 entries. Buy them both in one volume and save $$$.

Hello Max,
 
I just received my copy of Liturgical Latin and am very well pleased.  It only took a week from when I sent the order to when I received it.  The book itself looks great.  Thanks again for providing an opportunity to acquire a book that is almost impossible to find anymore.

This customer ordered two sets!-

This is a difficult volume to find, and the quality of the reproduction is exceptionally good, especially considering the age of the exemplar. The perfect binding appears sturdy enough to stand up to repeated use, which this dictionary surely deserves. It is a beautifully produced edition at a very affordable price. Not only is this convenient dictionary useful in its own right (especially because of its many citations), but is also a very welcome companion to William Smith and Theophilus Hall's English-Latin Dictionary (currently available from Bolchazy-Carducci). Maximus Scriptorius has done Latinists and Latin students a great service in making this dictionary easily available once again.

We were pleased to receive this review from William Linney of Linney's Latin Class and Getting Started with Latin.

"...This unabridged dictionary, in two volumes, claims to have every Latin word in it, from all Latin literature.

I know that's an ambitious claim, so I tested it by looking up the most obscure word I could thing of: subnervo. I had trouble finding this word in any dictionary a few months back, and I doubted it would be in this dictionary. But lo and behold, there it was. The dictionary entry gave the literal meaning, the normal meaning, and even a figurative meaning, along with citations of Latin literature where the word could be found. I was very pleased to have such a resource on my shelf.

This dictionary is not cheap, but it's really worth having on your shelf if you translate texts of any kind..."

Max,
Received the dictionary last Saturday. It took less than two weeks. That is a speedy service. Very happy with the good quality of the reprint. I like the handy size of the dictionary.
I own both Lewis and Short's A Latin Dictionary and Oxford Latin Dictionary. I can list the following uniqueness of the Smith's in comparison to the other two.
(1) Comparative philological remarks on some entries to aid linguistic cognition to other ancient and modern languages.
(2) All plant and animal words are given binomial Linnaean naming as part of their translation/definition.
In summary, great service and beautiful book.

THE PSALTER IN VULGATE LATIN AND DOUAY ENGLISH

The New Psalter with Interverse Translation by Rev. E.P. Graham, LL.D.  578 pages

Original year of publication: 1935
Reprinted in the year: 2010

So what makes this book so unique? Isn't it just the Psalms, presented in Latin and English? No. This book contains, in one handy volume, the entire Psalter of the Roman Breviary with the English text embedded in the Latin. Far different from other parallel texts available, this book allows one to study the translation of each particular verse as they read. This book will be an essential tool for anyone who is seeking better comprehension of the Vulgate Psalms. The Psalms are ordered according to the Psalter Pope Pius X, so this book will is suited for anyone using a Breviary from 1911 to 1962. There are two indices, an alphabetical and a numerical index to the entire Psalter. Also included are the 17 canticles of the Roman Breviary. Latin text is from the Vulgate Psalms, English is from the Douay-Rheims.
