    Description: On a platform outside Vilvorde Castle, near modern-day Brussels, Tyndale ("Lord ope[n] the king of Englands eies." ["Lord, open the king of England's eyes"]) stands chained to a stake. An executioner strangles Tyndale, who is dressed in loincloth. A crowd of soldiers, monks, and civilians observes the execution. Desiring to increase knowledge of the scriptures among common English people, Tyndale achieved notoriety for illegally producing the first printed translation of the Bible into the English language. He also wrote other controversial religious works. The translator had completed the New Testament and a portion of the Old Testament prior to his death.
