I would be interested in a collection of (partial) Bible translations from Old English up to the 19th century. I am far more interested in a full set to compare than in individual texts. I would also like to see Psalters considered as partial Bible translations in this context.

If that is unrealistic, I'd at least like the Anglo-Saxon Bible (http://wordhord.org/nasb/) ... besides, I'm sure they could make good use of any licensing fees.

This would be a great addition.

Hoping for the same!  It would be nice to have Tyndale, Coverdale, Bishops, Geneva, etc!

I'm very interested in this too.

That link to the Anglo-Saxon Bible does not work.

Sorry - for link or search: (click to enlarge so you can read it)

Note: Yes I have read and taken the Logos' forum guidelines to heart. At this time I do not see how a reference to Anglo-Saxon texts could be competition without a broad stretch. In fact I'd be willing to provide links to Old Gothic texts or Church Slavonic. If, however, Logos promises to provide Anglo-Saxon texts, grammars and dictionaries I'll immediately request that all site identifiers be removed from this post.Geeked

Whew Confused For a bit, I thought only Catholics were interested! Smile

Yes, I'm interested as well.  Many of these texts are in the public domain.  I would especially like to have the Geneva notes.

I did not create these but:

1) download

2) unzip

3) place in the annotations directory of L3

4) import into L4 (beta) or wait for the next release

4035.Geneva notes.zip

Now that wasn't hard was it. And thanks to whoever had originally put this file together.
