What do Rome and Edinburgh have in common?
Last Week’s Question:
The first complete English-language Bible was printed on this day in 1535. What was it called?
Answer: It was called the Coverdale Bible in honour of the man who compiled and published it, Myles Coverdale. Before 1535, English language versions of either the Old or the New Testament were available, but this was the first time both were published together. A later edition, published in 1539, carried the royal license and was therefore the first officially approved Bible translation in English.
