The New Testament 1526

Translated by William Tyndale
Transcription by W. Cooper
Introduction by David Daniell

The publication in 1526 of a modestly-priced pocket edition of the New Testament in English was arguably the most important single event in the history of the English Reformation. This new edition is the first complete reprint of William Tyndale’s pioneering translation of the New Testament from Greek into English. Not much larger in format than the original edition, it presents Tyndale’s words in the original spelling. It has been transcribed and edited by Dr W. R. Cooper, and has an introduction by Professor David Daniell. British Library Publications * Hardback * 2000 * ISBN: 0-7123-4664-3 * £15.00 (US$22.50)

The Wycliffe New Testament 1388

Edited by William Cooper An Edition in modern English language. John Wycliffe’s preaching and writing inspired the translating of the Bible from the Latin Vulgate into English, and the impact of the translation was so great that a law was passed condemning anyone caught reading it to be burned alive as a heretic. Despite such resistance, the Wycliffe Bible was read by thousands, and even after the advent of printing and the arrival of Tyndale’s New Testament, handwritten copies of Wycliffe’s Bible were still cherished and read. For the first time in over 600 years, the Wycliffe New Testament has been produced in modern English language by one of our members, Bill Cooper, also the editor of the recent edition of Tyndale’s 1526 New Testament, published in 2000.

William Tyndale, A Biography

David Daniell

“A massive contribution to the history of the Reformation in England. It is novel and important in its focus upon the language of the English scriptures in the formative period and in its long-range perspective.” J. Enoch Powell, Times Higher Education Supplement.
