Jubilee Bible
This is the Bible translated from the original languages into Bangla by the monks of Sadhu Benedict Moth. The translation came to an end in 1998; as such, it is the first Bangla Bible containing also the so called ‘Deuterocanonical’ books. Since it was published by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Bangladesh in the Jubilee Year 2000, it is known as Jubilee Bible. The following files, in text, HTML, and PDF format, contain the text of the Bangla Bible with the latest corrections/modifications.

Biblical Aids
    Appendix to the Jubilee Bible

iScriptorium is a freeware utility (English/Bangla interface) to help you monitor all the text- and audiovisual- files contained in this very page and in the Liturgy and Bible pages.
Files may be downloaded either as a set of files or one by one; and once downloaded they can be viewed through the application itself. iScriptorium is smart enough to understand when a given file has been revised/modified: in such case it will download it, otherwise it will skip it.
