been estimated that the price at which it sold, would be equal to 40l. sterling, at the present day. A bill was soon brought into the House of Lords to suppress Wicliff's work, on which occasion the duke of Lancaster-a statesman in advance of his age, said—“We will not be the dregs of all; seeing other nations have the law of God, which is the law of our faith, written in their own language.” And he added with great solemnity, that "he would maintain our having this law in our own tongue against those who brought in the bill, no matter who they were.” The duke succeeded in opposing the bill, and this success led to Wicliff's publishing another and more correct translation of the Bible. This translation, however, was the sig. nal for a bitter and general persecution of such as read the Word of God. The next translation appeared in 1526, and was made by the celebrated John Tyndale. Wicliff's version had been rendered from the Latin, but Tyndale's was from the Greek, and it was the first translation of the New Testament out of the Greek into the mother tongue. Tyndale accomplished his work at Antwerp, from whence the translation was sent by some four or five merchants, hidden among bales of goods, to the shores of this country. But when it was known that many copies had found their way hither, the reading of them was denounced by the ecclesiastics of the day, and Tonstall, bishop of London, purchased all the copies that he could collect from all quarters, and committed them to the flames at St. Paul's Cross. While this was going on in England, new impressions were being sent forth from the printing-presses in Holland, so that in four years no fewer than four editions were published. The bishop of London's method of disposing of Tyndale's version met with approval in high quarters. Sir Thomas More was among those who approved his policy, until one day, in his Court, he questioned a heretic as to what persons

in London enabled Tyndale to subsist abroad, and send forth his copies of the Scriptures ? And was no little surprised to receive for answer, that “It was the bishop of London who maintained him, by sending a sum of money to buy up the edition of his Testament.” It is
