At Bob Sungenis’s web site he has posted a Q&A that stems from his earlier criticism of Jimmy Akin’s comments on the Douay-Rheims Bible. See question 29 at catholicintl.com/qa/2004/qa.htm#Question%2030
A questioner tells Sungenis that “only the Douay translation was declared by a council (Trent) to be a bulwark against the Protestant heresies,” and then he lists other reasons he prefers the Douay-Rheims translation over modern translations.
Sungenis replies, “I prefer the DR over modern translations for the same reason.” But he doesn’t even seem to notice the gross error in the questioner’s comments.
The Rheims translation of the New Testament was completed in 1582. The Douay translation of the Old Testament was done in 1609-1610. But the Council of Trent ended in 1563–long before any part of the Douay-Rheims translation was produced!
How could the council fathers have “declared” the Douay-Rheims “to be a bulwark against the Protestant heresies”? That version of the Bible didn’t exist while the council sat and wouldn’t be complete for nearly half a century!
