Overview
Here is John Wycliffe's greatest accomplishment: the translation of the Holy Scriptures into English. Producing the first complete English bible, Wycliffe was the first to set aside Latin as the language of the Scriptures and to reach the English people in their own tongue. Working from contemporary manuscripts of the Latin Vulgate, he sought no strange English but only the easiest, most common -- albeit the most Latin-like -- language possible. Wycliffite translations of the New Testament (1380) and Old Testament (1388), which was actually completed by Nicholas of Hereford, opened a new epoch in the history of the Bible. In this new edition, we have provided an increased page size, 12pt. type, and beautified text, with the inclusion of over 50 images of ancient artwork and illuminated texts. LAMP POST has taken a 600 year-old ancient translation and made a modern, clean, readable version of the original Middle English text, a simple yet fun dichotomy, creating a project that all book- and bible-lovers are sure to appreciate and enjoy
