Thread: How the North of England led Bible study

The impact of ‘Northeners’ can be seen in many modern Bible translations.

(Bias disclaimer: I’m London-born, but Yorkshire bred.)
The first person to translate part of the Bible into #OldEnglish was probably the #VenerableBede (c. 672-735) from #Sunderland. His deathbed version of John doesn’t survive.
The oldest surviving #OldEnglish Bible texts are the words written on top of the Latin in the #LindisfarneGospels — written in the 10th century by #Aldred from Chester-le-Street in the Northumbrian dialect (language north of the river Humber).
