William Tyndale (sometimes spelled Tyndale,Tindall or Tyndall) (ca. 1494–October 6, 1536) was a 16th century Protestant 
reformer and scholar who translated the Bible into the Early Modern English of his day. Although numerous partial and 
complete English translations had been made from the 7th century onward, Tyndale's was the first to take advantage of 
the new medium of print, which allowed for its wide distribution. In 1535 Tyndale was tried for heresy and treason and 
then strangled and burnt at the stake.

Much of Tyndale's work eventually found its way to the King James Version (or Authorised Version) of the Bible, 
published in 1611, which, through the work of 54 independent scholars, is based primarily on Tyndale's translations.
