George Leo Haydockscion of an gaydock English Catholic Recusant family, was a priest, pastor and Bible scholar. His edition of the Douay Bible with extended commentary, originally published inbecame the most popular English Catholic Bible of the 19th century on both sides of the Atlantic.

He would go on to serve poor Catholic missions in rural England. Haydock’s first assignment was at Ugthorpe, Yorkshire, a poor rural mission. While there, Father Haydock completed the work for which he would be best remembered: Haydock took his text from the Challoner-MacMahon revision, but added a substantially extended commentary.

This commentary was partly original and partly compiled from Patristic writings and the writings of later Bible scholars.

Its substantial and continuing popularity is reflected in its long history of varied editions. It would remain continuously in print until at least with a long series of publishers in England and America, and would enjoy a renewal of interest at the end of the 20th century, spurring a new series of reprints and modern digital reproductions.


Present day Traditional Roman Catholics who see uncertainty of purpose in the post-Conciliar Church have found inspiration in the English Catholic Recusant movement and in Father Haydock’s confident expression of Faith.
