Rationale for this page

The main page is intended to be a working document to assist in improving the module. Some of the historical information comes from my own searching of COPAC, and some of the observations about the text is from private discussions. David Haslam 14:18, 17 October 2009 (UTC)


Henry Martyn also translated the Psalms into Persian, but for simplicity I have not noted this in the main page. It is assumed that William Glen incorporated Martyn's translation of Psalms or adapted it when he published the OT. David Haslam 14:20, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
