In 1582 the Douai-Rheims [Catholic] Bible was published in English. Unlike the "Protestant" translations which were translated from the original Hebrew and Greek, the Douai-Rheims was translated from the Latin Vulgate Bible in use by the Church at the time. The Trinitine Latin Mass continued to be used up until the Second Vatican Council in the 1960's
