Subject: 16.1023 Shakespeare's Biblical References
Comment:        Re: SHK 16.1023 Shakespeare's Biblical References

Bill Arnold wrote (amongst other self-glorifying nonsense - there's a
fine piece of gibberish about the Septuagint): "I do not believe that
the statement that Tyndale's was the basis for the KJV is accurate.
Interested readers will find my book covers all this."

And disinterested readers will seek out the introductions by David
Daniell (a fine Shakespearean, as it happens) to his modern-spelling
editions of "Tyndale's New Testament [1534]" (Yale University Press,
1989) and "Tyndale's Old Testament" (Yale University Press, 1992).  Also
the preface to the British Library original spelling edition (2000) of
Tyndale's 1526 New Testament (the burnt one).
