<ROFL>You didn't know?  Where have you been?  When William Tyndale tryed
to translate the Bible into old english from Latin, he was exhiled into
Germany.  And, when he came back to england he was hung, but, of course
that wasn't enough for them.  They dug up his bones, burned them, and
tossed them in a nearby river.  Large numbers of Tyndale's Bibles where
burned, that's why only one or two copies still exist.  My favourite
quote, is one tyndale said to a clergyman:
"I will make it so that the boy that driveth the plough knows more of the
scripture than you!"
