Synopsis: In the sixteenth century, the vernacular Bible was a serious issue of debate between Protestants and Catholics. In the story of the English Bible, the period from 1557 to 1582 was especially important: English Protestant exiles published the first Geneva version in 1557; Anglican bishops produced a version of their own in 1568; and in 1582, English Catholic exiles published a New Testament. The Battle for the Bible in England, 1557-1582 tells the story of these versions in their various editions. It also analyzes the material that accompanied the biblical text ? introductions, notes, illustrations, and the like ? and the controversial literature surrounding Bible translation in this period to uncover the beliefs and values of those who produced the various versions of the English Bible.
