Written on the Heart

written-tyndale-reading-243x317

Across an 80 year divide, two men translate the word of God into the English tongue. For one, it means death at the stake. For the other, it could mean an archbishop's mitre.

After almost a century of unrest, the King James Bible was intended to end the violent upheavals of the English reformation.

But deep-seated conflicts force a leading translator to confront the betrayal of his youthful religious ideals, for the sake of social peace.

Written by David Edgar to mark the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible, Written on the Heart was directed by Gregory Doran.
