Online Catholic Commentaries?


I have been reading the old testament and often get questions. Is there any good online Catholic commentaries that are free or do you have any you recommend written that I should pick up? Thanks! :slight_smile:


Here are a few Catholic commentaries you can freely access online:

Haydock Bible, 1859 edition.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ 2011 New American Bible - Revised Edition

New Testament only:

The Catholic Biblical Association’s 1942 supplement to the Confraternity Bible, A Commentary on the New Testament.


One of my favorites is Agape Bible study. It’s not complete but the studies that it has are fantastic and I have never seen anything unorthodox. Lots of good historical and scriptural context added!


The Bible text and/or commentary for individual Bible books in the Claretians’ Christian Community Bible can be downloaded in MS Word and PDF formats for free, here.


If you can rad Latin, there are tons on Google Books. :slight_smile:
