  • WILLIAM TYNDALE was born in about 1494 near Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, and educated at Oxford. During the early 1520s he began his English translation of the New Testament, which he completed in Cologne and Worms in 1526. He followed this with a translation of the Old Testament, the first five books of which were printed in Antwerp in 1530. Among his other works were The Parable of the Wicked Mammon (1528), The Obedience of a Christian Man (1528), A Pathway to the Holy Scripture (1530), The Practice of Prelates (1531) and An Exposition upon the First Epistle of John (1531). In 1535 he was arrested, charged with heresey and condemned to death; he was executed on 6 October 1536.
