Archbishop Thomas Cranmer saw to it that the Matthew’s Bible was shown to King Henry VIII, who then licensed the complete Bible in English. Thomas Cromwell, Henry’s Viceregent for church affairs, subsequently encouraged bishops to order copies of the Matthew’s Bible for their churches. Such official sanction sparked tremendous demand for the book.
- Facsimile of an excellent copy of the 1537 Matthew’s Bible
- Clear, legible type throughout (marginal commentary is in smaller type)
- Authoritative new preface
This resource is great for Bible collectors and anyone interested in the history of the English Bible!
