Excerpt from The Translators Revived: A Biographical Memoir of the Authors of the English Version of the Holy Bible This little volume has been long in preparation. It is more than twenty years since the Author's attention was directed to the inquiry, What were the personal qualifications for their work possessed by King James's Translators of the Bible? He expected to satisfy himself without difficulty, but found himself sorely disappointed. There was abundance of general testimony to their learning and piety; but nowhere any particular account of the men themselves. Copious histories of the origin, character, and results of their work have been drawn up with elaborate research; but of the Translators personally, little more was told than a meagre catalogue of their names, with brief notices of such offices as a few of them held. The only resource was to take these names in detail, and search for any information relative to each individual. For a long time, but little came to hand illustrative of their characters and acquirements, except in relation to some of the more prominent men included in the royal commission. The Author quite despaired of ever being able to identify the greater part of them, by any thing more than their bare surnames.

Product Description:

Excerpt from The Translators Revived: A Biographical Memoir of the Authors of the English Version of the Holy Bible

The writers to whom the author of this book is most indebted for his biographical materials are Thomas Fuller and Anthony a-wood. The former, the wittiest and one of the most delightful of the old English writ ers,-and the latter one of the most crabbed and cyni cal. What has been obtained from them was gathered wherever it was sprinkled, in scattered morsels, over their numerous and bulky volumes. Beside what was furnished from these sources, numerous fragments have been collected from a wide range of reading, including every thing that seemed to promise any additional matter of information.
