Summary
  • Episode 3. During the 16th century William Tyndale translated the Bible into English so that everyone could read and study it. This act profoundly affected the language and changed history
  • Episode 4 covers the growth of the English language during the 15th and 16th centuries imported by a bustling maritime trade. The result was a rich language cultivated by courtier poets like Sir Philip Sidney and brought to bloom by Renaissance playwrights, including Shakespeare
