The Holy Bible: Translated from the Original Languages with Critical Use
of All the Ancient Sources by Members the Catholic Biblical Association of America
. Paterson, NJ, St. Anthony Guild Press, 1952-61. LC 52-13526.

This edition usually referred to as the "Confraternity Edition" was actually begun in 1941 when the American Episcopal Committee of the Confratenity of Christian Doctrine issued a translation of the New Testament based on the Latin Vulgate (Paterson, NJ, St. Anthony Guild Press, 1941). In 1943 Pope Pius XII, in his encyclical Divino Afflante Spiritu, urged Biblical scholars to return to the original languages for new translations of the Scripture. The Catholic Biblical Association thus began translating the Old Testament from Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek texts. The fifth volume, the revised New Testament, was never issued in this series. Instead it became part of the New American Bible (B51).
