Context

This leaf from a Tyndale New Testament is from a printing done in 1535 or 1536, probably in Antwerp, Belgium, under the supervision of Myles Coverdale, a close friend of Tyndale. During this time, Tyndale was in prison and would be martyred in 1536. The small size of this printing is indicative of those copies that could be more easily smuggled back into England. The text from the Bible on this leaf is from Romans 10:12 to 11:13.
