Abstract

This essay presents an overview of the historical circumstances of the birth of Erasmus's Greek-Latin Novum Instrumentum (Basel: Froben, 1516), an edition which contained the first printed text of the Greek New Testament available on the market and which became the basis for all subsequent Protestant New Testament translations (including Tyndale's and the one in the King James Bible) until the end of the 19th century. The essay, presented in honour of Prof. Guido Latré, highlights the manifold connections between England and the Dutch humanist's biblical project.
