The Most Dangerous Man in Tudor England

About the Show

On 6 October 1536 an Englishman charged with heresy was strangled and burned at the stake near a castle outside Antwerp. One of the most influential forces of the English Reformation, William Tyndale’s life’s work had been to produce a carefully translated Bible that could be read in the language of the ordinary people of England. A man with an authentic Christian mission, whose life and legacy have been largely hidden from history, Tyndale's story marks a turning point in Christianity in England and the development of the English language.
