Description

An edition in modern spelling, with an introduction, the original prologues and the Epistle to the Laodiceans

Although John Wycliffe did not actually translate the Bible that is named after him, his preaching and writings inspired his followers, the Lollards, to translate the Bible from the Latin Vulgate into English. Wycliffe, an intellectual Augustinian who taught at Oxford University in the 1370s, believed that the center of all Christian practice must be the Bible and that every person should have access to the Scriptures in their own tongue. Wycliffe's views brought into question the hierarchical practices of the Church, and his followers were persecuted by both Church and State. Their first translation, known as the Early Version of the Wycliffe Bible, made the text of the whole Bible available to the people of Britain in their own language for the first time.

The text of the New Testament presented here, known as the Later Version, appeared around 1388, four years after Wycliffe's death. Its impact was so great that in 1401 a statute was issued banning it upon pain of death. Lollards were persecuted for their beliefs and their ownership of forbidden texts. These efforts, however, failed to stop reproduction of the texts and scribes continued to copy them faithfully, risking great dangers to themselves. Even after the advent of authorized, printed English Bibles in the sixteenth century, handwritten copies of the Wycliffe Bible were still cherished and read.

This edition of the Wycliffe New Testament, published in association with the Tyndale Society, has been rendered into modern spelling and punctuation, so that over 600 years later, the modern reader can enjoy this remarkable text for themselves.

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...
