UConn English Associate Professor Clare Costley Kingâoo is co-editing a scholarly edition of William Tyndaleâs Obedience of a Christian Man (1528) with Susan Felch of Calvin College. They are putting the edition together as part of the Tyndale Project, which has recently been awarded a Scholarly Editions and Translations Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The project promises to offer new ways of thinking about Tyndale, an influential Protestant reformer and Bible translator.
On Monday, Oct. 31 (Halloween and Reformation Day), Kingâoo will discuss âReading Tyndaleâs Obedience in Whole and in Part,â an article she co-authored with Felch. Forthcoming in Reformation, the article examines the early reception history of Tyndaleâs Obedience. Kingâoo will discuss the article, the broader NEH project, and the future of Tyndale studies.
The article will be pre-circulated. Please contact George Moore at George.email@example.com for a copy if you plan to attend the discussion.
