Title page from the 1582 Douai-Rheims New Testament, "specially for the discouerie of the CORRVPTIONS of diuers late translations, and for cleering the CONTROVERSIES in religion."

The Douay-Rheims Bible, also known as the Rheims-Douai Bible or Douay Bible and abbreviated as D-R, is a translation of the Bible from the Latin Vulgate into English. Completed between 1582 and 1609, it was commonly used by Roman Catholics in English-speaking countries until the 1900s, when it was considerably revised by the English bishop Richard Challoner. The Douay-Rheims Bible was translated from the Latin Vulgate, primarily by two English exiles in France, William Allen and Gregory Martin.

It is the most common choice of Bible translations among traditionalist Catholics today.
