Scripture commentaries


The Catena Aurea of St Thomas Aquinas (Patristic commentary on the Gospels)


Haydock's commentary on the Bible (19th century)

This Catholic Bible commentary, following the Douay-Rheims Bible text, was originally compiled by Catholic priest and biblical scholar Rev. George Leo Haydock (1774-1849). This transcription is based on Haydock's notes as they appear in the 1859 edition of Haydock's Catholic Family Bible and Commentary printed by Edward Dunigan and Brother, New York, New York. The site is still a work in progress but is complete except for a fourth of the Old Testament.
