    Description

    [Bible]. Early Printed Bible Leaf.
    A rare Bible leaf from the first edition of Coverdale's Diglot Testament. Printed in Southwarke by James Nicolson, 1538. Herbert 37. This contains Scripture text from the New Testament in both Latin and English each corresponding to the other after the Vulgare text, commonly called S. Jeroms. The Latin text is in Roman Letter and the English text is in Black Letter. This leaf contains Scripture verses 16:17(partial) to 17:6 (partial) from the Gospel of John. In the last part of Chapter 16, Jesus tells us "be of good cheer for I have overcome the world"! In the first part of Chapter 17 Jesus says it is time for Him to be glorified! With two woodcut capitals. Miles Coverdale(spelled Myles then), 1487-1569, is not as well known today among Evangelical Christians as some of the Spiritual Giants of time past, but he was responsible for successfully spreading Gods Truth throughout Europe in his day. Friends with Tyndale, he realized that the Bible must first be put into the language of the day in order for a great work of revival to begin. He was the first to produce an English translation of the complete Bible from the original languages.
