J. Christopher Warner, Ph.D., professor in the English Department, is the editor of Volume 4 of The Independent Works of William Tyndale (containing “The Exposition of the Fyrst Epistle of Seynt Ihon” and “An Exposicion vppon the V. VI. VII. Chapters of Mathew”) published this month by The Catholic University of America Press (750 pages; ISBN 978-0813237695). As described in the press’s catalogue, “This volume replaces the nineteenth-century editions on which scholars and students have long relied by providing an original-spelling text of each Exposition with notes recording substantive textual variants in all sixteenth-century editions; an introduction and extensive commentary documenting, in particular, parallels and differences between the two texts and Tyndale’s other works, the works of Martin Luther and other reform theologians, and the works of the Church Fathers and others; plus a comprehensive glossary, appendices and indices.”
Preparation of this volume was supported in large part by a Francis J. Fallon, S.J., Endowed Research Professorship awarded by Le Moyne College in 2013–2016.
