Bible 1611 King James Version & Apocrypha

United Kingdom

The Shakespeare’s Globe theatre marked the anniversary by a week-long complete recital of the work during Holy Week 2011,[1] along with a revival of its 2010 production of Anne Boleyn, which dealt with the King James Version’s inception. The Royal Shakespeare Company commissioned a new play, Written on the Heart, also dealing with the KJV’s translation, to premiere in October 2011.

The Royal National Theatre hosted a reading of 12 extracts from the KJV by actors from its company in October and November 2011 directed by Nicholas Hytner, James Dacre and Polly Findlay[2][3] and the Bush Theatre reopened in October 2011 on its new site with a performance cycle entitled ‘Sixty-Six Books‘, in which each book of the KJV is responded to by a different writer.[4]

The anniversary was also marked by exhibitions at the libraries of Oxford[5] (supported by a lecture series[6]) and Cambridge[7] universities, as well as that of Lambeth Palace.[8] Exhibitions were also held at Winchester Cathedral[9] and the John Rylands Library.[10]

United States of America

Zondervan released The Holy Bible: 1611 King James Version 400th Anniversary Edition as a replica of the original Authorized Version as it was released in 1611, to mark the anniversary. Digital images from the Bible Museum in Goodyear, Arizona were used to produce this work with the Apocrypha excluded.
