Timeline of Bible translations

This timeline only covers some Greek, Latin, and English translations. And there’s really only a handful of the available English translations. Still it’s fascinating.

[UPDATE: My friend Kim says this timeline is incorrect. Some of the connections are wrong and some critical pieces are missing. Even though there should be nothing wrong with the diagram since I found it on the Internet (and the Internet never lies) I trust Kim’s judgement.]

I would love to read Latin well enough to read St. Jerome’s translation.

I found this timeline here.

  1. Hi Tucker. Thanks for the link. I’m not sure of it all — I think though, well, I’ve studied Tyndale a little, and I’m pretty sure he translated from Erasmus’ Greek NT… I’ll do some more research. Thanks.
