  5. *Holy Bible -The New King James Version, Thomas Nelson Pub., p.1221, The History of the Kings James Bible,

    "On Henry's death in 1547, his ten-year old son Edward was crowned king, and regulations restricting the circulation of Bibles were removed. The churches were once again ordered to have Bibles. Reformers who had fled to Europe returned to England. And the printing of Bibles flourished. The breath of England was once again that of flaming Protestantism.

    But Edward reigned only six-and-a-half years. On his death, Mary Tudor, the Roman Catholic queen, commonly known as "Bloody Mary," came to the throne and brought a new, more violent fire to the land. During her reign, hundreds of Protestants, including Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, and John Rogers, who edited the Matthew's Bible, were burned at the state. The public use of the English Bible was prohibited. Copies were removed from the churches and burned."
