October 31, ‘Reading Tyndale’s Obedience in Whole and in Part’ by Clare Costley King’oo

Early Modern Works in Progress Discussion:king

English, University of Connecticut

Monday, Oct. 312-4 p.m., Humanities Institute, Fourth Floor, Babbidge Library

UConn English Associate Professor Clare Costley King’oo is co-editing a scholarly edition of William Tyndale’s 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), King’oo will discuss “Reading Tyndale’s Obedience in Whole and in Part,” an article she co-authored with Felch. Forthcoming in Reformation, the article examines the early reception history of Tyndale’s Obedience. King’oo 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.p.moore@uconn.edu for a copy if you plan to attend the discussion.
