The King James Version of the Bible as a 'Savage Text'

I gave this lecture at the University of Aberdeen on 4th May, 2011. The University hosted a series of six lectures which celebrated the achievements of the 'KJV', but which also attempted a 'retrospective assessment' of it. I was delighted that the organisers thought that the stance I had adopted towards the use and misuse of the Bible in my book The Savage Text, could be included in the series. Some of the ideas in that book, with, of course, new material and new reflections, are contained in this lecture. I remain grateful to the organisers for their kind invitation, and not least for their hospitality during my visit.
