In light of the 400 anniversary of the KJV, there will be a lot of discussion this year regarding the history of English Bible translations.  If you are interested in learning more about this topic, I would highly recommend Christopher Mulvey’s article “A full account of the Bible in English.”  Mulvey focuses on the period from A.D. 735 to the KJV in 1611.

Daniel Wallace also has an excellent series of articles covering the history of English translations from Wycliffe (A.D. 1382) to the NET Bible (2001).
