About The King James Bible Trust
The King James Bible Trust has been established to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible which was completed in 1611. There have been few more important single publications and its impact through history has been colossal.
Our aim is to celebrate its impact in history and on language, particularly in this country, but also throughout the English speaking world.
The Trust is hard at work developing projects which will include:
- Commissioning new music and literature
- Study days in some cities following James’s route from Scotland to London, focusing on the translation story
- Lectures at Oxford and Cambridge, where the translators worked
- Developing educational school projects
- Publishing new texts
- Discussions about similar values in the texts of the world’s major religions
- Major exhibitions in London and around the country where the translations were made
- Street culture projects
2011 was launched at Hampton Court, where the translation was commissioned at the 1604 Conference.
I hope that you will find something of interest in our plans. I would be delighted to hear from you if you have any ideas. Our website will be constantly updated and please do sign up to our mailing list.
