I appear to be waving my church history flag again…
There was a (surprisingly) good documentary on Channel Four on Bank Holiday
Monday evening called The Bible Revolution about the origins of the first translations of the Bible into English. Not only does it speak about the Bible translations in a very vivid and accurate way, it shows how these actions shaped English language and thought.
If you didn’t see it, C4 has it on their web site for download.
Sign up, and then look for the documentary called “The Bible Revolution”.
Be warned, it’s huge – about 750MB, so only really a reasonable
proposition if you have a broadband connection. Worth seeing though.
