Czech Bible

January 1, 1360

The Bible of Dresden is the earliest known translation of the full Bible into Czech. It was translated from the Latin Vulgate.

This was followed by others, including the Prague Bible in 1488. The Bible kralická (Kralice Bible) was published between 1579 and 1593. It’s third edition (1613) is the most widely known and used of the Czech translation, with the New Testament having been translated from the Greek.
