    According to his report of the Hampton Court Conference, William Barlow presented the following plan for the making of a new translation. Barlow wrote: "this to be done by the best learned in both the Universities, after them to be reviewed by the Bishops, and the chief learned of the Church; from them to be presented to the Privy Council; and lastly to be ratified by his Royal authority" (Sum and Substance of the Conference, p. 46).

    Was this original plan for the making of the KJV followed?

    Is there any evidence that the KJV was "reviewed by the Bishops" [that is Bishops who were not part of the translators]?

    Is there any evidence that the KJV was "presented to the Privy Council" of the King for their approval?
