The Welsh Bible of 1588, translated by Anglican Bishop William Morgan, touched the lives of thousands of Welsh countrymen!
A Bible whose likelihood seemed impossible!
In 1549, Edward VI required all public worship to be conducted in English. Fourteen years later Elizabeth I passed an act which required a Welsh translation of the Bible to be completed in only 4 short years.
William Morgan’s scholarship and zeal for a Bible all Welshmen could read resulted in the Welsh Bible of 1588, a translation in use until the end of the 20th century. A volume of such literary and linguistic significance, it became the foundation for which modern Welsh literature was based.
