The Parker Society Two volume works of Coverdale.
The Parker Society was a text publication society set up in 1841 to produce editions of the works of the early Protestant writers of the English Reformation. It was supported by both the High Church and evangelical wings of the Church of England, and was established in reaction against the Tractarian movement of the 1830s. Its Council was dominated by evangelicals, but not to the exclusion of other views. It takes its name from Matthew Parker, Tudor Archbishop of Canterbury and manuscript collector.
Offered today is the two volume work of Miles Coverdale. Writings and Translations & Remains.
