William Tyndale window at Hertford College, Oxford. He had a singular passion to translate the Bible into English, but Henry VIII and Cardinal Wolsey opposed him, so he fled to Germany. He was betrayed by a friend, strangled and burned at the stake on this day in 1536. But his translation is immortal; almost 80% of what he was able to complete was carried into the Authorized King James Version. And besides all that – he was right. (Richard Gibbs)
