Written by: Ruckman Posted on: 03/17/2003
Bible translator and reformer. 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.
