    Thanks! Filled in a few gaps and found dating isn't as exact a science as one would think :laugh:

    Several lists are at http://bible-researcher.com/versions.html.

    I'm sure the lists are not exhaustive, but I haven't found better ones. (The site even includes the Baptist-inspired American Bible Union revision of the KJV that substituted "immerse" for "baptise.")

    Yes, that is a good resource as are the others. This one is quite information centered. I had picked his bones clean :laugh: but need to return and fill in some other information.

    A really great book on the history of Bible translation is David Daniell's "The Bible in English". It's big but well worth the money.
