King James Bible

Can you tell me when, why, and by whom the King James Translation was published?

King James I appointed a commission of revision to revise the Bishop’s Bible. The first edition of this *Authorized Version * (also known as the King James Bible) appeared in 1611. For more details see the *Catholic Encyclopedia * article:
