The Geneva Bible - 1560 Edition
The Geneva Bible, produced during the Protestant Reformation, was the first English Bible to be fully translated from the original languages. This facsimile of the 1560 Geneva Bible features clear type and complete original marginal commentary. It was produced at a time of religious and political upheaval and used to foster biblical literacy among the common people of England. This Bible was the first to feature many innovations still used in Bible publishing today, including text printed in Roman type, division of the text into numbered verses and accented syllables to aid in pronouncing proper names. Additionally, words and phrases displayed at the top of the pages promoted memorization, while maps and woodcuts illustrated biblical stories. The Geneva Bible preceded the King James Version, making this an interesting translation that was, and is, historically significant in the development of the King James Bible.
