Chained Bibles. In sixteenth-century Britain, when many people were unable to read, when threats and persecution had been handed out to those who translated the Bible into English, and when many clergy and laity were still resistant to the idea of Bible readings in church, Edmund Bonner*, Bishop of London, set up six copies of the Bible in English in St Paul's, chained them to the pillars, and put a notice over each urging people to read it quietly and reverently. Other bishops followed his lead, including Nicolas Shaxton*, Bishop of Salisbury, who in 1538 required his clergy to chain an English Bible to the desk in their parish church so that parishioners could either read it for themselves or have it read to them.

Many more, found earlier, had been removed to Leningrad in 1870. These newly found ones, divided between Cambridge University Library, the British Library, the Bodleian Library, Oxford and the John Rylands Library in Manchester*, were studied initially by PE. Kahle* and provide evidence of masoretic transmission several centuries earlier than anything previously available.
