Learn how the many marriages of Henry VIII cost William Tyndale his life.
A tour of William Tyndale's New Testament in English. Tyndale's translation provided the basis for many later English translations, including the Great Bible, the Geneva Bible, the Bishops' Bible, and the King James Version.
It was once dubbed the most dangerous book in England and anyone found with a copy could well have been executed. There are now just three copies the Tyndale Bible in the world. One of them is at St Paul's Cathedral and will go on display for the first time ever. Anna O'Neill has been to take a look.
This is a wonderful talk on William Tyndale. William gave us the Bible in English, and died for it. His passion was to put the Bible into the hands of everyone so that we could read it for ourselves. Executed as a heretic in 1536 for translating the Bible, within a few years his translation was in every church in England. Melvyn Bragg, broadcaster, novelist, and biographer of Tyndale, and Jane Williams, theologian, explore what difference he made to our lives. Chaired by Canon Mark Oakley, recorded at St Paul's Cathedral on 24 October 2017.
William Tyndale believed every person should be able to read the Bible in their own language. Find out more about this man and his dedication in this exclusive video from Studies Weekly.
