"The Bodleian Libraries Summer 2011 Exhibition opens on Friday 22 April 2011. It celebrates the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible and sheds new light on its creation by examining the working process of the two translation committees based in Oxford at Merton and Corpus Christi Colleges. Dr Helen Moore, Chair of the Curatorial Committee, says, 'The King James Bible famously reads as 'one voice' with a remarkable unity of tone and language which gives it richness and authority. In reality, however, it is a work of many voices. In it we hear the words of earlier translators – notably William Tyndale – combined with those of the fifty or so translators who worked on it for six years. The exhibition reunites some of the books and manuscripts actually used by translators and we hope that it will give a unique insight into the aims and methods of the countless committee meetings that were held in Oxford and elsewhere as the translation took shape. It is an enormous privilege that we are able to breathe life back into the translation process for a modern audience, by showing these books and documents in public - some of them for the first time'"
