For the next eighty years -- the years of Shakespeare among others -- Tyndale's masterly translation formed the basic of all English bibles. And when the authorized King James Bible was published in 1611, many of its finest passage were taken unchanged, though unacknowledged, from Tyndale's work.
Although, therefore, this astounding work of pioneering scholarship was the basis of all subsequent English bibles until after the Second World War, and though it was the version of the Bible used by some of our greatest poets, it is today virtually unknown because of its suppression for political reasons and because of its difficult early sixteenth-century spelling.
