Purdue Conference on the King James Bible

Beth Bradburn and Grace Tiffany presented papers last week at the biannual conference on Renaissance prose at Purdue University, held this year in honor of the 400th anniversary of the first publication of the King James Bible. Beth Bradburn's paper discussed the KJV's status as an (or as the) original seventeenth-century prose poem. Grace Tiffany discussed Shakespeare's adaptation of biblical parables to comedy, history play, and tragedy.
