The Bishops’ Bible, which was first printed in 1568, has frequently been cast as a useless and widely unpopular translation of the Bible into English.
However, by exploring what the intended purposes of the Bishops’ Bible were, and by paying attention to the wealth of images, prefaces, maps, diagrams and heraldic devices within it, a different story emerges. This talk explores the role that Archbishop Matthew Parker played in the creation of the Bishops’ Bible and sheds new light on this neglected version of the English Bible.
All are welcome, but those wishing to attend should book a free ticket at https://harry-spillane-bishops-bible-archbishop-parker-lecture-lpl.eventbrite.co.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org not later than Monday 1 May.
