Did they ever Burn Bibles????

You bet!!!
As Jehoiakim, king of Judah and the princes under King Zedekiah showed their contempt for God by burning the writings of Jeremiah. and confining the prophet in a dungeon so now men sought to stem the rising tide of reform by burning the Bible and its translators!

Bible burning was inaugurated in England by the destruction of copies of the Antwerp edition of Tyndales"s New Testament, at St. Paul's Cross London in 1527 followed by the burning of a second edition in 1530.
