Is World Book Day's 'most dangerous' book here at St Paul's?
04 March 2015
To mark World Book Day (5 March) we tell the story of one of the most controversial and 'dangerous' books in history, a copy of which remarkably survives at St Paul's.
One very small book housed within the library of St Paul’s continues to exert its influence on us, almost 500 years since its contents were almost wiped from existence by the combined might of the King of England, Pope and Holy Roman Emperor in the churchyard outside the Cathedral.
A fascinating BBC documentary about William Tyndale, presented by Lord Bragg, is still available to watch on iPlayer.
