Free Douay-Rheims Bible Software

Use online or download for offline use.


Welcome to! Here you will find free software containing the following:
  •  The Douay-Rheims version of the Bible, along with the notes by Bishop Richard Challoner. (Why this version?)
  •  Definitions of unfamiliar words in the Bible. Simply click on a word to see a brief definition.
  •  Cross-references between verses.
  •  A concordance that lets you look up any single word or several words. (What's a concordance?)

There's no catch. The software is free, and in the public domain (with no warranty). I simply wanted to make my favorite translation of the Bible easier to access. I also wanted to make it a little less difficult to read by providing brief definitions of unfamiliar words.
