@BaroniusPress new website with versions of the Bible

Baronius Press makes beautifully bound Catholic books including my favorites the 1962 Daily Hand Missal (HERE) and Divine Intimacy (HERE). They also print a fine 3 volume Roman Breviary with English translations (HERE). They also have reprinted the Ronald Knox translation of the Bible, which is a great service. HERE

Speaking of the Knox Bible, I received this….

Baronius Press is pleased to announce a launch of a new, mobile friendly website with the full texts of the Clementina Vulgata, the Douay-Rheims Bible and the Knox Bible.


Compare the translation side by side or view each Bible independently. Also included are all notes by Bishop Challoner in the Douay Rheims version and notes by Msgr. Ronald Knox in the Knox Bible.

An ideal tool for anybody who needs to quickly search or refer to the Bible or compare its traditional Latin and English translations.

I think this particular arrangement is unique.

The Knox Bible can’t be used liturgically, and it has some a few disadvantages, but it also has some real advantages too. The language is marvelous and it can add depth to your own reading.

Remember that there is an indulgence available each day for reading Sacred Scripture!

    God bless Baronius (whose eponym, let it be noted, was an Oratorian). Between its readable print and easy-access arrangement, their hand missal is the best on offer in my view.

  2. “The Knox Bible can’t be used liturgically”

    Although it is good to have alongside the Vulgate when saying the Office in Latin. Different English translations of the psalms can provide complementary interpretations of the sometimes obscure original Hebrew as translated in the Vulgate Latin. The Douay-Rheims and Revised Grail psalms tend to be more accurate and literal on a word for word basis, while the Knox psalms are often richer and perhaps more interesting.

    Although I do have a Breviary and Knox version of the Bible and an old Douai Reims I still have downloaded the latest offering from Baronius Press and I really do thank them for doing so.

    This is helpful. Great post and photos on the 1962 Missal, and it’s travel-sized. Thanks Fr. Z.

    Great stuff – but its outrageous that the 3 volume Breviary is $400 on Amazon.com – and £559 on Amazon.co.uk – ie nearly $700!
