William Tyndale

The Church of England commemorates William Tyndale today. He is remembered as one of the first to make a translation of the Bible from Hebrew and Greek into English. He translated all of the New Testament and about half of the Old Testament, and his work was completed by Miles Coverdale.

The Tyndale Society's website naturally has a life of Tyndale. The British Library has one of the only two complete copies of the Tyndale New Testament still in existence.
