Summary:
William Tyndale's first translation of the New Testament (1526) was printed in Germany, savagely suppressed in England, and eventually led to his execution.

    schema:description "William Tyndale's first translation of the New Testament (1526) was printed in Germany, suppressed in England and eventually led to his execution." "Tyndale's direct English was substantially incorporated into the Authorized Version of 1611, and it made the New Testament available for the first time - in Tyndale's famous determination - even to the 'boy that driveth the plough'. The Obedience of a Christian Man (1528) develops the argument that ordinary believers should take their spiritual sustenance direct from Scripture, without the intervention of Popes and prelates. Its discussion of sacraments and false signs, the duties of rulers and ruled, and valid and invalid readings of the Bible, makes the book a landmark in both political and religious thinking. This example of English prose also raises, even today, some questions about the true challenge of living a Christian life."@en ;
