Authorized King James Version

The Authorized Version was meant to, and did, replace the Bishops’ Bible as the standard lectern reading in the Church of England.

January 1, 1611

In an effort to mend the Puritan rift in the Church of England, King James I authorizes the production of a new translation. The King James Version soon replaces the Latin Vulgate as the translation of choice among English scholars.  —The History of Bible Translation
