Sheffield King James Project. Interpreting the Vernacular Legacy.

2011 marks the 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible. Also known as the Authorized Version, this was the first English Bible to be commissioned for use in churches throughout England. Its publication shaped our language, history and culture.

Based at the Department of Biblical Studies, the Sheffield King James Project offers a network of resources and opportunities both to mark this special anniversary, and to reflect on the relevance of the bible in the modern world.
