Subject:        Shakespeare and the King James Bible
 
I heard a rumor recently that Shakespeare may have had something to do with
the creation of the King James Bible.  This seemed unlikely to me but, not
being a biblical scholar (or even much of a Shakespearean one), I had no
good reason to refute the rumor, other than that it seemed too interesting
to be true.  Does anyone have any information in either camp that could
illuminate the "truth" here?  Thanks in advance,
 
Dana Leslie Goldstein
