King James Bible @ 400
2011 will mark the 400th anniversary of the publication of the “King James Bible” (a.k.a., King James Version, a.k.a. Authorised Version), and there are many events scheduled and being scheduled to observe and celebrate this. The invitation to give the 2011 Ethel M. Wood Lecture (Heythrop College, London, Wednesday, 02 February 2011) included the request that I link it with the KJB anniversary. I’m writing the lecture now (more later).
In the process of small explorations on the internet, I’ve found the web site of the King James Bible Trust (based in the UK), which has lots of interesting audio/video material on the history of the Bible in English. (Ignore the home page photo of Boris Johnson, currently Mayor of London!)
