Footnotes

  • The Rheims version and the Bishops' Bible version in parallel columns, with Fulke's commentary at the end of each chapter. The Rheims version is translated from the Vulgate chiefly by Gregory Martin; the Bishops' Bible translation was overseen by Matthew Parker. "This 'counterblast' to Martin... was indirectly responsible for the marked influence which Rheims exerted on the Bible of 1611" (Herbert).
