Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition

The Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (also known as the RSV-CE) is an adaptation of the Revised Standard Version (RSV) of the Bible for use by Catholics. It is widely used by conservative Catholic scholars and theologians, and is accepted as one of the most accurate and literary Bible translations suitable for Catholic use.

The RSV-CE, sometimes called the Ignatius Bible, was published in the following stages:

  • New Testament (1946, originally copyrighted to the International Council of Religious Education)
  • Old Testament (1952)
  • Deuterocanonical Books (1957)
  • Catholic Edition of the New Testament (1965)
  • Catholic Edition of the Old Testament incorporating the deuterocanonicals (1966)
  • Second Catholic Edition (Ignatius Edition) (2006)

Famous quotes containing the words edition, catholic, revised, standard and/or version:

    Books have their destinies like men. And their fates, as made by generations of readers, are very different from the destinies foreseen for them by their authors. Gulliver’s Travels, with a minimum of expurgation, has become a children’s book; a new illustrated edition is produced every Christmas. That’s what comes of saying profound things about humanity in terms of a fairy story.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    Carlyle is not a seer, but a brave looker-on and reviewer; not the most free and catholic observer of men and events, for they are likely to find him preoccupied, but unexpectedly free and catholic when they fall within the focus of his lens.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Coming to Rome, much labour and little profit! The King whom you seek here, unless you bring Him with you you will not find Him.
    Anonymous 9th century, Irish. “Epigram,” no. 121, A Celtic Miscellany (1951, revised 1971)

    The art of advertisement, after the American manner, has introduced into all our life such a lavish use of superlatives, that no standard of value whatever is intact.
    Wyndham Lewis (1882–1957)

    I should think that an ordinary copy of the King James version would have been good enough for those Congressmen.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)
