This leaf from the Matthew's Bible is from a first edition published in 1537, possibly printed in Antwerp, Belgium, for a London publisher. Prepared by John Rogers, using one of Tyndale’s assumed names, Thomas Matthew, this version was the first English Bible completely translated using original Greek and Hebrew sources. The text of the Bible on this leaf is from John 11:22 to 13:5. In 1555, John Rogers was burned at the stake for his Protestant beliefs and Bible translation work.
