The Patrologiae offers, in a single source, over a thousand years of the most influential works of late ancient and early medieval theology, philosophy, history, and literature. The Patrologia Latina (Series Latina) covers the Latin Fathers from Tertullian in A.D. 200 through Pope Innocent III (d. 1216).
Includes the full text of the 1582 Catholic Rheims New Testament and 1609 Catholic Douai Old Testament, which are very difficult to find. (The "Douay Bible," most readily available in full text online is actually an 18th century revision by Bishop Richard Challoner, a convert from Anglicanism, who modified the text to make it less Latinate and more like the King James version.)
Additional translations--especially historic ones--not found in Bible Gateway, including seven English versions, Hebrew Bible, transliterated Hebrew, four Greek versions of the New Testament, the Septuagint, and the Vulgate.
