'To make a good one better': translating the Bible

Introduction

King’s College London has a long and flourishing tradition of Biblical scholarship. Founded in 1829 as an Anglican counterthrust to the establishment three years earlier of the ‘godless college in Gower Street’ (as Thomas Arnold described the fiercely secular University College London), King’s set out to teach, in the words of its charter, ‘the doctrines and duties of Christianity.’

The College prayer, still said daily in the chapel, asks God to help ‘the seeds of learning, virtue and religion’ to ‘bring forth fruit abundantly.’

In this final section we look at some of those associated with the College whose work has helped to enhance the study and contemplation of the Bible.
