Douay-Rheims 1610

When researching Bibles on the internet, it is always better to view a facsimile rather than an electronic version. Of course, they are not searchable in the normal way, and resist the student who wants to line something up using software.

Here is 1 Tim. 2:12 in the Challoner version of the Douay-Rheims. This Bible is found in electronic form on many sites.
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to use authority over the man: but to be in silence.
But I have found the 1610 version of the Douay-Rheims so far only here, where we can read,
But to teach, I permit not unto a woman, nor to have dominion over the man: but to be in silence.
