    • 4 Pages

    The 1599 Geneva Bible was printed in London by Christopher Barker and deputies. It was not the first nor definitive edition, with 140 versions produced between 1560 and 1644. This attests to the text’s popularity amidst a fraught political and religious situation in the early modern period. Its publication has direct ties to Protestantism, particularly due to its creation by protestant Marian exiles.

Geneva makes a clear and straightforward argument that black dialects –or any non-white dialects for that matter– of English are being marginalized. That much I agree with.
