Queen of England celebrates 400th anniversary of mysterious piece of literature

Who is King James? Queen Elizabeth II

knows the answer to this question as she

recognizes the 400th birthday

of this mysterious work named after

a ruler of great, unheard of, power.

Dr. Rowan Williams has called it

an “extraordinary” text which has

“abiding importance”, so why have I

never heard of it and its contents?  I

consider myself quite the most avid

bibliophile, with a collection of

ancient books ranging from the times of

Homer and Vergil, but never in my

vast history of avid book loving

have I heard of King James.  I assume it

is named after the peculiar King

and historical figure, King James, he

likely ordered its creation.  The text

is a translated into english from an

ancient language and the true question

is what are the implications of this

possibly powerful work?  How could it

affect the thoughts of billions of men

and start a new revolution?  Time tells.
