By the 1580's, the Roman Catholic Church realized that God's Word could no longer be held captive by its corrupt hierarchy; thus, it surrendered it's fight for 'Latin only'.� Using the Latin Vulgate as a source text, it went on to publish an English Bible with all the distortions and corruptions that Erasmus had exposed seventy-five years earlier. Because it was translated at the Catholic College in the city of Rheims, France, it became known as the Rheims, or Rhemes, New Testament. The Old Testament was translated by the Church of Rome in 1609 at the College in the city of Doway, also spelled Douay or Douai. Combined together, they are commonly referred to as the 'Doway/Rheims' Version of the Bible.
