In 1566, French theologian Rene Benoit printed a French translation of Jerome’s Latin Bible. Benoit was a Roman Catholic Bishop of Troyes; however, his Bible was highly criticized for being too Calvinistic in his interpretation. However, this accusation may have been warranted. Benoit was a close friend of Henry IV, a notable Protestant royal.

 

According to Chambers, this 1582 French edition was shared by a number of printers including Crevel, Lescuyer, Mallard and Pavie, all of which were publishing in Rouen. It should be noted that the Crevel edition is the only printing not included in the USTC.
