This book is the first in-depth study of the production and use of Bibles in late medieval and early modern England.

Over three and a half centuries, from the nascent universities and Latin Bibles of the thirteenth century to the death of Edward VI in 1553, it puts a new perspective on the advent of moveable type print and religious reform.

Based on the analysis of hundreds of biblical manuscripts and prints it reveals how scribes, printers, readers, and patrons havereacted to religious and political turmoil.

The material evidence undermines traditional narratives, revealing, for example, evidence of Church worship in English prior to the Reformation, or seeing Henry VIII's Great Bible as a useless book.
