In 1604, when the Authorized Version was commissioned, there were already many English translations of the Scriptures, which King James' scholars freely consulted. Because of the new translation's stunning success, these predecessors are not widely known today. Price and Ryrie have compiled a political and literary history highlighting the treasury of English Renaissance Bibles, both those officially sanctioned, such as the Bishops' Bible, and others which emerged from the shadows of illegal movements.
