William Tyndale statue in BristolWilliam Tyndale

Forbidden to work in England, Tyndale translated and printed in English the New Testament and half the Old Testament between 1525 and 1535 in Germany and the Low Countries. He worked from the Greek and Hebrew original texts when knowledge of those languages in England was rare. His pocket-sized Bible translations were smuggled into England, and then ruthlessly sought out by the Church, confiscated and destroyed. Condemned as a heretic, Tyndale was strangled and burned outside Brussels in 1536.

Tyndale’s English translation of the New Testament was taken almost word for word into the much praised Authorised Version (King James Bible) of 1611, which also reproduces a great deal of his Old Testament. From there his words

Heather Dalmage

“The SSSP was the first professional conference at which I presented. I remember, twenty-five years later, the paper I presented, the way others embraced my ideas, challenged me and supported my work. Over the years, I have found SSSP a place to try out new ideas, get professional support, and connect with sociologists concerned with social justice and social action. And, now, I find hope and inspiration in the newer – younger – scholars that are bringing their activism, experiences, and insights to the fore. The SSSP continues to be a place through which we can dream transformation while engaging in the work of scholar activism.”
