Summary

F. H. A. Scrivener (1813-1891) was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, and published a variety of works of New Testament scholarship while working as a clergyman and headmaster. At a time when new manuscripts of New Testament texts were being discovered, his skills as a transcriber and collator of these texts were greatly respected. This volume is his critical examination of the King James Bible which chronicles the history of the Bible's various editions and the evolution of the text. Scrivener reviews the various groups involved in translating and revising the Bible. A detailed discussion of the use of grammar and punctuation is included, as well as appendices listing all variations and amendments occurring between the different editions. Considering the King James Bible from both historical and linguistic perspectives, this volume provides a valuable overview of a translation that has been influential for four centuries.
