Excerpt from A Plea for the Bible in the Vernacular Two things happened in the meantime that fore tokened the break of day. One was the invention of the printing press, and the other was the Reformation. The watchword of the Reformation was an open Bible; and the art of printing made the Bible accessible to all. In 1611 the ban was lifted. King James not only rescinded the law which forbade the translation of the Scriptures into the English tongue but called a Con vocation oi English scholars to produce a' suitable version. They came together in the Jerusalem Cham iber at Westminster and, after ten years of earnest labor, completed the King James Version. This is the Bible now in use throughout the anglo-saxon world.
