“Y Bibl” …(The Bible)

 Y BiblBy translating the Bible into Welsh in 1588 from the original Greek and Hebrew it accomplished 6 effects:


1.  It defied The Act of Union in political and cultural assimilation with England
2.  It structured our language with strict standards
3.  It brought on the non-conformist movement, familiar to most of us, and we could possess the Holy Word spoken by familiar Welsh preachers in our own language instead of English or Latin and by English priests
4. It taught our people how to read and write
5. It brought forth our distinctive and world famous hymns
6. Its Word saved souls
