Background

Based on the study of the “Biblia Poliglota Complutense” Polyglot Bible. This was the first edition of a polyglot Bible and the first complete printed New Testament in Greek, the Septuagint and Targum Onkelos’s. Designed between 1502 and 1517, it was thought, well funded and overseen by Cardinal Francisco Jimenez de Cisneros. The first drawings were made ??in 1995 and again in 2011 for publication by a publisher of a complete Bible translation based on the revised JN Darby, French and Malagasy.
