Item description for The Wycliffe Bible: John Wycliffe's translation of the Holy Scriptures from the Latin Vulgate by John Wycliffe & Brett Burner...

Here is John Wycliffe's greatest accomplishment: the translation of the Holy Scriptures into English. Producing the first complete English bible, Wycliffe was the first to set aside Latin as the language of the Scriptures and to reach the English people in their own tongue. Working from contemporary manuscripts of the Latin Vulgate, he sought "no strange English" but only the easiest, most common-albeit the most Latin-like-language possible. (Latin constructions and word order were preserved even where they conflicted with English idiom.) His work was used by the Lollards, a group of itinerant preachers ("poor priests") who went about preaching, reading, and teaching from the English Bible. Wycliffite translations of the New Testament (1380) and Old Testament (1388), which was actually completed by Nicholas of Hereford, opened a new epoch in the history of the Bible. In this new edition, LAMP POST has taken a 600 year old ancient translation and made a modern, clean, readable version--a simple yet fun dichotomy--creating a project that all book- and bible-lovers are sure to appreciate and enjoy

Reviews - What do customers think about The Wycliffe Bible: John Wycliffe's translation of the Holy Scriptures from the Latin Vulgate?

This edition of Wycliffe Bible is user friendly  Jan 29, 2010
Wycliffe's text needs no comment. This edition is in a clear, crisp typeface. Wyclkiffe's original spelling is preserved, except for the substitution of modern forms in place of archaic alphabetic or runic symbols, which, if preserved, could be somewhat intimidating to one already having trouble with the Middle English text. In short, this edition preserves Wycliffe's language in a visually accessible way, much more useful than a facsimile edition would be.

I have found that, if one reads the Wycliffe edition with a copy of the Authorized Translation of 1611 to hand, it is easy to work out any difficult passages in Wycliffe. Only occasionally will there be a passage that cannot be resolved, at least to my satisfaction, by this comparison of texts. In that event one can turn to Skeat and Mayhew's "Concise Dictionary of Middle English."

The book itself (I bought the paper-backed edition) is solid and well made. The print is tiny, but clear, and the lines are more than double spaced. It poses no difficulty for anyone with 20-20 vision.
 
First English translation of the Bible  Dec 11, 2009
After the Bible was translated from Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek into Latin; this was the first translation into English. Wycliffe used the Latin texts to translate from. Since this was the late fourteenth century, it's not really the English we speak today. It is sometimes difficult to read, but some passages read fine once you get used to the fact the words aren't spelled like you are used to. Regardless, it is fun to have for curiosity and comparison purposes. The book itself is well put together, the typeface is modern so you actually know what letter is which. There is a decorative border on the top and bottom of each page, but mine is a little off-center so there is a blank strip across the bottom of the page, and the top border is not all there for most of the book (the last portion is centered better).
