Brief Description

This is a photographic copy of Erasmus’ third printed edition of the Greek New Testament published in 1522. This edition was used by Tyndale in his translation of the first English New Testament in 1526 and by the translators of the Geneva and King James Bibles.

Context

This is a photographic copy of Erasmus’ third printed edition of the Greek New Testament published in 1522. The Colophon to the Apocalypse contains the date 1522, but the Introduction says 1518. It contains both the Greek and the Latin (Erasmus' own translation) texts in parallel columns. This is the first printed edition of the Greek New Testament to contain the Comma Johanneum (1Jo5:7-8), although in a rather unusual form. This edition was used by Tyndale in his translation of the first English New Testament in 1526 and by the translators of the Geneva and King James Bibles.
