Welsh Bible

Full Product Description

This is a history of how the bible came to be translated into Welsh and its remarkable influence on Welsh life and culture. In 1563 the Act for the Translation of the Scripture and the Divine Service into Welsh was passed by Parliament. It was ordered by Elizabeth I's government, largely because it became apparent that the Welsh could not be converted to the Protestant faith without the use of their native tongue. Fears of foreign Catholic invasion made it imperative that they should be converted wholesale to the new religion to avoid any threat to the security of the realm. The translation of the Scriptures into Welsh has traditionally been regarded as one of the major factors responsible for the preservation of the Welsh language. It was also fundamentally important for the successful introduction of Protestantism and the later growth of Nonconformity. The impact of the "Welsh Bible" was, however, even more far-reaching, heavily influencing Welsh culture, language and literature for generations. This book would provide a survey of the significance of the Welsh translation of the Bible and its subsequent influence from the sixteenth century into the twentieth century.

Welsh Bible by Eryn White was published by The History Press in July 2007 and is our 35939th best seller. The ISBN for Welsh Bible is 9780752443539.

The Welsh Bible book will tell me the origine of how the bible was translated into Welsh. Are there any passages of scripture in Welsh or is it all in English. I can order a bible all in Welsh at a later date for my project if needed.
