King James Bible translation topic for BYU lecture, exhibit Oct. 27

Brigham Young University English professor Rick Duerden will present “Glory and Power: The Battles within the King James Translation of the Bible” at a "House of Learning" Lecture in the Harold B. Library auditorium Thursday, Oct. 27, at 2 p.m.

The lecture is free and the public is welcome to attend. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the first printing of the Bible translation known as the King James or Authorized Version. The Harold B. Lee Library is hosting an exhibition in the L. Tom Perry Special Collections gallery titled “The Life and Legacy of The King James Bible: Celebrating 400 Years.”

Duerden will offer background on the contention over previous translations and then discuss how the tensions between Puritans and the established Church of England show up in the translation.

Visitors to level  one of the library will be able to get a close look at a King James Bible from the 1600s as well as many other books that both influenced and were influenced by the King James Bible.

For more information, contact Roger Layton at (801) 422-6687 or roger_layton@byu.edu.
