    He and Frobisher rushed it out to beat some others trying to be the first to publish such a work. That's why ole [Erasmus] revised it 3 times, one of its 30-odd revisions since he first published it.

    Their concern was that what later became known as the Complutensian Polyglot would be published before Erasmus's Diglot.

    Nevertheless the Complutensian Polyglot, even though published later, still represents an important milestone in the history of bible publication.

    The Complutensian Polyglot Bible was the first printed polyglot of the entire Bible, initiated and financed by Cardinal Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros (who died the year it was published in 1517) and published by Complutense University of Ma-drid (thus explaining why it is called "Complutensian" from "Complutum," which was the Latin name of the city of Alcalá de Henares, where the University was originally located.).

    The Complutensian Polyglot includes the first printed editions of the Greek New Testament, the complete Septuagint (Old Testament), and the Targum Onkelos (Aramaic translation of the Pentateuch).

    A hugely important event that kick-started the Reformation in England.
    I trust that everyone is aware that Oct 31st next year is the 500th anniversary of martin Luther nailing his 95 theses on the door of Wittenburg cathedral. There is sure to lots of publicity surrounding this event, and lots of Roman Catholics saying what a dreadful mistake it was, so it behoves us who are Reformed in our theology to be prepared to make our stand.
