Description:""In order to examine the exact nature of Beza's influence on the AV we investigated two documents which purport to represent two different stages in the making of the AV; the Bodleian Bishops' MS which deals with the Gospels and the Fulman MS which deals with the Epistles and which appears to represent the work of the Final Revision Committee. . . . ""In examining the MS annotations in Bodleian Bishops' our primary concern has been to establish the influence of Beza on these annotations and relate his influence on the Bodleian annotator to his influence on the finished AV. . . . ""In examining the Fulman MS . . . we were struck by the comparatively larger number of discrepancies between the Committee's attitude to Beza and the AV's attitude to him."" --from the ConclusionAbout the Contributor(s):Irena Dorota Backus received the D.Phil. from Oxford University and wrote her Habilitationschrift at the University of Bern, Switzerland. She is ""professeur ordinaire"" at the Institut d'histoire de la Réformation at the Univesity of Geneva, Switzerland.
