Cedarville, Biblical Heritage Gallery, Erasmus
This copy of the Erasmus Greek-Latin New Testament is a photographic reproduction of the third edition printed in 1519. It contains Erasmus’ translation of both the Greek and the Latin Vulgate texts in two parallel columns. This edition was used by Tyndale for the translation of the first English New Testament in 1526. It was subsequently used by the translators of the Geneva Bible, first printed in 1560, and the King James Version of the Bible, first printed in 1611. The volume is open to the beginning of the Gospel of John.
