Editorial Neil Inglis

Guest Editor - TSJ Nos. 38 and 39

How many of you remember Civilisation, the history series written and presented by Kenneth Clark (1969)? This documentary was made in a world no longer certain of its moorings to remind that world of those traditions. It is epic television, fundamentally traditionalist with a burst of forward-looking populism in the closing episode. In the final reel, Clark strolls through a redbrick university, ponders contemporary youth with cautious optimism, and denounces the institution of slavery. Civilisation travels the world (there is science too, as the narrator stands in front of Jodrell Bank radio telescope near Manchester), and covers much historical ground. But does Clark mention William Tyndale? We’ll get to that later (meanwhile, take a guess). Clark is trenchant, incisive, but gentlemanly; in discussing the art of France and Italy, he is fully in command Neil Inglis and never at a loss for words or independent insight. The crib sheets come out later in the series, and his contributions on the Reformation seem second-hand and half-hearted. How, for example, does he treat the country of Tyndale’s birth? Clark’s passions are engaged when discussing Constable and Tennyson, although their glory days marked a finite period in time; later imitators never matched their standards. Poetasters and chocolate-box artists enjoy safety in numbers. Overall, Clark seems a bit lukewarm on the United Kingdom. There is a dutiful segment from a production of Hamlet, featuring Ian Richardson (House of Cards) in the title role, with an incredibly youthful, pre-Picard Patrick Stuart as Horatio. But then Clark just had to mention Shakespeare, didn’t he? And if he had to bring up Shakespeare, he was bound to mention Tyndale also? Just once, as it happens; step away from the DVD player and you will miss it. Yet brevity can be an unintended compliment, and just perhaps Clark was

5


onto something. He knew that golden ages of civilization (and their creative power, so antithetical to slavery, as he tells us) are short. Rapid bursts of civilizing energy are followed by violence, or unsettled periods of consolidation or decline. The civilizing customs and manners that go with them—take medieval courtly love, followed by Victorian etiquette toward ladies—die out, or at least appeared to have died out by the late 1960s when Clark faced the camera. Clark strikes an elegiac note tempered with realism, and despite his faults (and they are few), he was reminding the future of the glories of the past, as we in the Tyndale Society are doing in the 21st century. –––––––––––––––––––– ♦ ––––––––––––––––––––

If you were a newcomer to William Tyndale, you might suppose that Tyndale’s most ardent fans were at Hertford College (Oxford). Is that in fact the case? Do Hertford students revere their college’s traditions and honour its role in the Reformation? During Chapel sermons, do they thrill to the heroic sagas of Tyndale, Frith, and Coverdale? Do they debate the niceties of consubstantiation and transubstantiation over Beef Wellington and Chateauneuf-du-Pape at High Table? Do they wear “I love William Tyndale” badges on their lapels? Recent press coverage suggests otherwise. According to some reports, habitués of the Hertford college bar (a point of pride in the undergraduate community, for it was student-run) were keeping form lists of female students (“fitties”, to use the JCR argot). To general indignation, this Oxonian watering-hole has been taken out of the Penguin Club’s hands and placed under professional management. No doubt in Tyndale’s time, undergraduates crept into the local taverns and alehouses. Yet it is far more likely that heresy, and God’s plan for them and their world, were always issues of burning concern. –––––––––––––––––––– ♦ ––––––––––––––––––––

In the current issue, founding Society member Ralph Werrell announces an exciting Tudor history conference to be held at St. John’s College, Nottingham, from August 3-5, 2011 (see page 42). The title of the conference is The English Reformation up to Henry VIII’s Break with Rome. The call for papers includes an important qualifier; the King’s Great Matter is not the central focus. This approach is refreshing, as the Boleyn marriage is receiving superlative treatment in other forums. For example, Howard Brenton is to give this year’s Tyndale Lambeth Lecture on his new play Anne Boleyn (see Dates for Your Diary). And yet, as Christopher Wilkins described to us in his TSJ38 paper

6


(The Poyntz of Iron Acton), there was plenty of importance occurring at the dawn of the Tudor age, a trend that continues without letup throughout that epoch; nothing should be neglected. The William Tyndale story is a perfect example. My own bookshelves groan under the weight of Boleyn biographies, but I would dearly love to spend more time reading about Thomas Cromwell (and I’m under much affectionate pressure to read Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall, although that is another story). –––––––––––––––––––– ♦ ––––––––––––––––––––

A NOTE TO HISTORIANS.. A family friend applauded Andrew Hope’s and Brian Buxton’s ground-breaking articles on the historical identification of William and John Tyndale (also in TSJ38). New to the subject, my friend asked the rhetorical question; how it could be that the evidentiary record for a public figure’s life is so patchy, even granting that the events occurred in the distant past? You and I all know the archeological reasons, but for the sake of argument let us ponder the matter further. After all, for some individuals from the Tudor Age, the fossil record is complete (or nearly so)—Henry VIII’s day-to-day life can be minutely reconstructed. This set me thinking, and fate was soon to provide me with an unexpected tutorial in the forensic historian’s art. This same friend (let’s call him “Jacob”) also asked me whether I had any scraps of information concerning his own father, who lived in post-WWII Dublin and was a friend of my own father’s, Brian Inglis (a public figure, unlike Jacob Sr.). In requesting this favor, Jacob Jr. answered his own question. The life of Jacob Sr. is an enigma from start to finish (he died before his son was born). Still, my own father’s life was well-documented, and perhaps there was a letter or postcard extant between the two men, or a photograph or slide of them on a Connemara fishing trip or raising a glass of Guinness, buried in Brian’s personal archives. I resolved to find out. There was nothing, not a scrap. My father wrote reams of business correspondence, but Jacob Sr. and Brian would have had little reason to write to one another. Brian wrote personal letters (as people of that generation did), but mainly to women he was in love with (or to me, after I left for America). In rummaging around, I did come across a letter from Brendan Behan warmly praising some friends (including one “Jacob”) who had rescued Behan from a pub crawl that had ended in disaster. Eureka! I had a smidgen of information to give to my friend, so desperate for any clues about his own papa (and what a story to pass on to his own children and grandchildren!). Euphoria turned to despair, when Behan’s “Jacob” proved to be an unrelated Jacob, and Jacob Sr.

7


climbed down the ladder into the shadows all over again. Based on my researches, how well have primary source materials from the 20th century—the century of mass paper communication—held up? I am here to tell you that anything in ink is doing fine (“Sleepyhead!” sneers Brian’s classics teacher from a 1920s hand-written report card). And copies of newspapers, TV Times, and other magazines from my father’s heyday are surviving quite well (although the newspaper stock is thin and splintering at the edges, a phenomenon sure to get worse). What about typed letters? My father kept carbons of all of his correspondence, and this is where things get interesting. Those carbons—even recent items from the 1980s—are fading into illegibility. Of course, scientists and genealogists of the future will be able to decipher ostensibly blank onionskin paper, in much the same way as the so-called “invisible ink” could be read (with the careful application of lemon juice?). More likely, however, is that members of the younger generation, confronted with old carbon copies containing illegible typescript, will toss these treasures out. –––––––––––––––––––– ♦ ––––––––––––––––––––

Though not an observant Christian, I have taken to reading the lessons at our local church in Bethesda MD. The pastor and his staff use the New Living Translation (NLT). This is a clear modern translation that spells nuances out, reflecting the denomination’s liturgical needs. As I climb the lectern to begin the lesson, I find Paul the greatest challenge. Reading out loud, as opposed to reading silently at home, spells out Paul’s qualities of passive-aggression and false modesty (“And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling” (I Corinthians 2:3) (1769 Oxford Authorised Version)). Pick any line in Paul and you can play a fascinating game of compare-theversions using the many on-line Bible resources available (in drafting this editorial I used www.kingjamesbibleonline.org but there are many others). Compare the above version with the Weymouth Bible and you find the following committee product: “And so far as I myself was concerned, I came to you in conscious feebleness and in fear and in deep anxiety.” 1 Regardless of the translation, the key to delivering Paul to a congregation is to contrast the personal and possessive pronouns in a crisp delivery. Paul’s was a world in which something cataclysmic had happened and was soon to happen; it’s an us-against-them cosmos. They (often an erring congregation, lured by false prophets) are in peril for they have strayed from the path; but we will act differently, because you, the recipients of my letter, are going to listen to me and do as I say, invoking the name of God and Jesus Christ. You, TSJ readers, can

8


practice at home by reading out the following passage in the mirror (although not through a glass darkly!) These events happened as a warning to us, so that we would not crave evil things as they did, or worship idols as some of them did. For the Scriptures say, “The people celebrated with feasting and drinking, and they indulged in pagan revelry.” And we must not engage in sexual immorality as some of them did, causing 23,000 of them to die in one day. If you think you are standing strong, be careful, for you, too, may fall into the same sin. But remember that the temptations that come into your life are no different from what others Paul of Tarsus experience. And God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can’t stand up against it. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you will not give into it. (I Corinthians 10: extracts from verses 6-13, NLT). –––––––––––––––––––– ♦ ––––––––––––––––––––

Long-time Tyndale Society member Vic Perry has written to me about the book Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ: The Cost of Bringing the Gospel to the Nations in the Lives of William Tyndale, Adoniram Judson, and John Paton, by John Piper. This publication is available for purchase at Amazon and also via download at http://www.desiringgod.org/media/pdf/books_bfac/bfac.pdf. Vic shares his assessment, with particular reference to the treatment of William Tyndale. “For the history Piper is largely dependent on David Daniell, but his book is rather devotional and exhortatory, a good, brief, popular account of Tyndale. I think I’ll be buying copies for our grandchildren.” This sounds like a

9


most useful addition to Vic’s Tyndale bibliography which appears in the features section on page 39. –––––––––––––––––––– ♦ ––––––––––––––––––––

The How I Met Tyndale column is hitting its stride. My purpose in carrying these articles has been to break the ice, to allow all Society members to describe how Tyndale came into their world. First exposure to WT can occur under seemingly banal circumstances. Richard Latchford-Knowles tells how he made the acquaintance of the great translator through a mere scrap of paper announcing a Tyndale event—an encounter foreshadowed by Valerie Offord’s binned conference invitation in her article in TSJ38. For the Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed; from humble beginnings great change can follow. There are as many such tales as there are Tyndalians. And whether you call it coincidence, or the Holy Spirit, unseen forces are bringing this man into our lives, and now we are doing our part to bring him into the lives of others. –––––––––––––––––––– ♦ ––––––––––––––––––––

TSJ39 breaks new ground, as we are moving Tyndale in a multi-media direction (a trend that will continue, as there are plans to have a Society blog and Facebook page). Look no further than the hugely exciting report from Martin Andersen on the William Tyndale biopic currently in development. Another newcomer, Ramona Garcia, gives techies and technophobes alike all manner of useful advice for enhancing the power of Google Books searches in Reformation studies. But this is a highly personal edition, too, as Anne Richardson pays tribute to the late Don Millus, a much loved and respected figure in Tyndale circles. This is a meditation on personal and historical recognition. I met Don at a Tyndale Conference in La Jolla in 2000. We were never to meet again, yet we established a once-in-a-lifetime rapport. I remember our shared astonishment that George Bush’s election machine, in the form of Karl Rove, could dare to question John McCain’s bravery in the Hanoi Hilton. In our book reviews, features, event reports, and letters sections, we hear from old friends and colleagues Brian Buxton, Ralph Werrell, Andrew Hope, David Ireson, and Vic Perry. John Hellstern contributes a How I Met Tyndale column, and also shares thrilling news of the Dunham Bible Museum (Houston TX) and their unmissable program for next year, the 400th anniversary of the KJV . Above all, I want to express a special word of thanks to Christianity Today, who have

10


given us permission to reprint Timothy George’s stunning profile (from their September 2009 edition) of John Calvin, whose hatred for Michael Servetus leads us naturally to my own paper (delivered in Barcelona in 2006) comparing the lives of Servetus and Tyndale, approximate contemporaries, and drawing attention to the parallelisms between them. And last but not least, we include an obituary for greatly-loved Tyndale Society member Ernest Henry Noble. Happy readings and researches to you all!

Society Notes

Compiled by Mary Clow

Dorothy Daniell has recently been in hospital, and is now home again with David. They are both being wonderfully cared for, and supported by their family. Please hold them in your thoughts and prayers.

Deborah Pollard, Tyndale Society Webmaster, has been singing - in Inuktitut. On a trip to islands in the Canadian arctic she joined in a Book of Common Prayer Morning Service, including old hymns, all in the local language, ‘Still very familiar’. Ralph Werrell is recovering from a triple by-pass and heart valve replacement, and is still determined that the Nottingham conference he is organising for August 2011 will go ahead as planned (see Dates for Your Diary). We wish him a good recovery.

Lucy Winkett, our former Lambeth Tyndale lecturer, and currently Canon of St Paul’s Cathedral, has been appointed to the central London church of St James, Piccadilly. Once known mainly for fashionable weddings and distinguished memorial services, it is today as much concerned with outreach to those in need, from its location just off Piccadilly Circus. At the same time St James’s hosts concerts of great music, which will be near to the heart of Revd Winkett who before her ordination was a music scholar.

Ralph Werrell and Eunice Burton

Eunice Burton celebrated her 80th birthday on July 22 with lunch and tea among friends and colleagues. She thanks everyone who sent her greetings.

Mary Clow has had two successful hip replacements in the past 8 months. She apologises for dilatory correspondence over the period, but hopes now to make it up.

Obituary of Ernest Henry Noble MBE 1924-2010

Ernest Noble was born in Paddington in December 1924. After leaving school at 16 he went into publishing: an early indication of his love of books and the English language. As with many young men of his generation, however, his life was changed by WWII. Against all odds, he was accepted into the naval division of the University Short Course Scheme: this accelerated bright young men to officer status, with the promise of a university education after the war. After intensive training, Sub Lieutenant Noble took up his role on the minesweeper HMS Gazelle, and operations included protecting larger vessels as they bombarded the Normandy beaches. By chance Gazelle Ernest Noble made an unscheduled visit to Devonport for repairs soon after: it was here that Ernest met his future wife Laura, whom he married in 1945. After the war, Ernest completed his degree in Modern Languages at Cardiff University. He then joined the Air Force as an Education Officer before moving to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. Ernest appreciated that, to have an interesting FCO career, he needed to specialise in a ‘difficult’ language. Arabic attracted him and he went to the Foreign Office’s Middle East Centre of Arab Studies (MECAS) in the Lebanon. During his diplomatic career, Ernest was posted to embassies across the Middle East including Tunisia, Morocco, South Yemen and Bahrain. Upon retirement, Ernest and Laura moved back to Devon. One key factor in their choice of Buckland Monachorum was being within walking distance of the church. Ernest’s faith was a fundamental pillar of his life: he had become a Lay Reader while in the Middle East, and came to play an active role in St Andrew’s in Buckland. He was also able to combine his faith with his love of language through membership of the Tyndale Society. Ernest was devoted to his family. A joy of his later years was watching his grandchildren forge their paths in life and he took a vicarious delight from their lives and successes. They in return adored him. Ernest recovered from Non Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006 but was made aware of two inoperable aneurysms: this encouraged him to live life to the full until the very last moment. Ernest is survived by Laura, two sons, four grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
