The Independent Works of William Tyndale

Preparation of five critical editions of the prose works of influential English Reformation thinker William Tyndale (c.1495-1536), to be disseminated in printed and online open access digital formats.

The editors will produce five old-spelling critical editions of William Tyndale's non-translation prose works. These editions will be disseminated in printed and online open-access digital format. Despite William Tyndale's importance, current available editions of Tyndale's books are inadequate; this project replaces defective 19th-century versions. The editors will collate all existing printed copies of the earliest versions of their base texts and will undertake research in to the multiple factors at work in their original production and reception. The editors must travel to archives in Europe and the United States to examine the books themselves in order to complete this work.
