Default Is there an online Catholic concordance?

You know, the one that shows you a word and every passage that includes that word, almost like a dictionary. But it needs to be Catholic, or with cross-references to the "Apocrypha" if it is Protestant.

Concordances are usually keyed to a particular translation of the Bible.

You can search the USCCB website with the search parameters restricted to the New American Bible. This will function as an online concordance, but it will also report any instances of the search terms in footnotes and other extrabiblical text on those web pages.

BibleGateway.com has the Douay-Rheims along with about 20 other English translations.

I was just about to accuse you of making a false claim, because when one is on Bible Gateway's Keyword Search, it does not allow them to choose the Douay Rheims from the pulldown list (at least not on my computer!).

But then I checked Bible Gateway's available versions, and saw the Douay Rheims listed (and I was surprised to find that some of their texts even have the "Apocrypha").

I took note of the fact that each version is numbered, and the Douay Rheims is number 63. Therefore, if one visits Bible Gateway, and wants to search the Douay Rheims (but, like me, is faced with it not being in their menu), they can search for a word in any translation, and then change the version number ("version1=XX") to 63. For example, here is how the word "holocaust" appears in the Douay Rheims as per a Bible Gateway search:

http://www.biblegateway.com/keyword/...=63&limit=none

(In case others are wondering, I chose that word because it strikes me as being distinct to Catholic translations).

By the way, as a follow-up, while Bible Gateway has *SOME* of the 'Deuterocanonicals' from the Douay Rheims, it lacks other portions. Case in point, the portions of Esther which are not found in the Masoretic Text are not available. That bothered me.

(Edited)

TAN Books has an excellent concordance for the Douay-Rheims, for about
US$35.

(Edited) I have a couple of concordances for different bible translations, but came here to find one that I can access while at work for those times when I am defending the faith in dicussions with non-Catholic coworkers.

Thanks to all of you who did provide suggestions and on a side note, I agree with Matthew in that our Catholic book stores seem to be sorely lacking in concordances for Catholic approved bible translations...

God Bless!

Matthew
There is a brand new RSV-CE concordance now available:

Regarding a topical concordance, I agree with Manfred above. The following topical concordance for the Douay Rheims is excellent. You can always look up the topics and then go to the passages in your own respective bible translation:

Talking Re: Is there an online Catholic concordance?

For now, there is a free catholic concordance in Google Books:
http://books.google.com/books?id=7UM...rdance&f=false

Hope that helps.

FYI,
Im a developer and have taken on the task of creating an online concordance & bible. When ready, I'll post back here. I plan to give users control to add new keywords and/or flag improper keywords, etc. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated and anyone willing to help in this project is welcome to contact me. You dont need to know programming. We will need to prepare the entire bible into one text file. The problem with most of those online bibles is that I dont know if they are christian or not. Most are and i find it frustrating how easy things are for christians to find free services online but us catholics have to get stuck buying the books. Very little free catholic services online.

Based on peoples feedback, I will also offer free hosting to catholic websites and groups as well as offer a liturgical music planner that will recommend liturgical music for different parts of the mass.

Most importantly I will make it support multiple languages.

I must confess to you all that I am extremely nervous about taking on this huge project. I will invest much time and money and will make it free. But if God gave me this task, the right people will come along to help. (huge sigh)


Thanx and God Bless.

Try this:

http://www.greeknewtestament.com/

This link is much more than it seems. For each NT passage you select, it gives you SEVERAL Greek versions (e.g., Alexandrian, Byzantine, etc) PLUS Latin Vulgate PLUS several English versions, including Douay-Rheims!

Then, for a searchable RSV, just go to:

http://quod.lib.umich.edu/r/rsv/

Happy hunting!

(Edited) Buy the software "The Faith Database", put out by Jerry Usher of Catholic Answers fame. It'll fix you up in a number of translations. Costs about 35 bucks and worth every penny.
