Overview

The Reformed Roots of the English New Testament examines the nature and extant of Theordore Beza’s influence on what we know today as the Authorized Version of the Bible. Two key documents, the Bodleian Bishops' manuscript (Gospels) and the Fulman manuscript (Epistles), appear to represent the work of the Final Revision Committee of the Authorized Version and provide substantial evidence for Bezian influence on the earliest stages of this crucial moment in the history of biblical translation and publication.
