Websites with Tyndale Material

As websites tend to be more transitory than printed publications this list is very short, assuming that those wishing to access Tyndale related material on the web will start by making searches themselves and so find current sites.

Many of the works of William Tyndale can be accessed free and in full online. Entering the title of the work in a web search will bring up currently available sites.

The Acts and Monuments of John Foxe(www.johnfoxe.org)
An authoritative site providing access to this major source of information about Tyndale, and some of his associates. As well as the texts of the 1563, 1570, 1576 and 1583 editions, there are essays by leading academics and much background information.
The Catholic Encyclopedia(www.catholic.org/encyclopedia)
Useful for basic information about associates of William Tyndale and other figures of the Reformation period. In the United Kingdom many holders of local public library cards will be able to access online The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (2004 edition) which, again, has useful summaries of the lives of major figures. The latter can also be found in hard copy form in larger United Kingdom libraries.
The Tyndale Bible Concordance(http://ec2-54-200-125-189.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com/conc/)
An on-line concordance developed by Deborah Pollard of Canada who was formerly this site's webmaster (or should one say webmistress?).
