William Tyndale was ordained as a priest in 1521, having studied Greek diligently at Ox- ford and Cambridge Universities, specifically the Textus Receptus. He conferred with Luther in Germany, and stayed on the Continent, translating the Bible from Greek into English and smuggling New Testaments into England.         Tyndale, who was betrayed by a friend and arrested in Brussels, Belgium, was found guilty of treason and heresy against the Church. He was strangled in the courtyard of the prison and then burned at the stake.
