Matthew's Bible 1537 Edition: Hardback

Full Product Description

Pastor John Rogers assembled in 1537 a volume that contained, for the first time as part of a complete Bible, all of William Tyndale�s translation work, the 1534 New Testament, the Pentateuch, and the nine historical books, ending with 2 Chronicles. Where there were gaps in Tyndale�s work, Rogers used that of Miles Coverdale (1535).

Archbishop Thomas Cranmer saw to it that the Matthew�s Bible was shown to King Henry VIII, who then licensed the complete Bible in English. Thomas Cromwell, Henry�s Viceregent for church affairs, subsequently en�couraged bishops to order copies of the Matthew�s Bible for their churches. Such official sanction sparked tremendous demand for the book.

� Facsimile of an excellent copy of the 1537 Matthew�s Bible
� Features clear, legible type throughout (marginal commentary is in smaller type)
� Authoritative new preface
� Great for Bible collectors and anyone interested in the history of the English Bible
