about this item

Scholars of early modern history and literature offer a variety of perspectives on the translation of the Bible into English authorized by King James in the early 17th century. Among the topics are the birth and early reception of a masterpiece: some loose ends and common misconceptions, early Oxford Hebraism and the King James translators 1586-1617: the view from New College, the Hebraic explorations of the English mercier: Richard Kilbie (1560/61-1620), the earliest known draft of the King James Bible: Samuel Ward's draft of 1 Esdras and Wisdom 3-4, and Miles Smith (1552/53-1624) and the uses of oriental learning.
