T. G. Chugunova’s book, «William Tyndale: Word, Church, and State in the Early English Protestantism», is the first biography of this prominent English theologian and translator of the Bible written and published in Russia. The author provides an overview of the life and acts of William Tyndale paying special attention to his theological works. Some of his most notable treatises were for the first time translated into Russian language and included in the book as the appendices. The reviewer analyzes the advantages as well as the faults of the monograph concentrating on the sources and the methods used by the author. In particular, the emphasis is put on the lack of author’s awareness of the modern historiography of the English Reformation which results in numerous drawbacks of the whole book.
Key Words: William Tyndale, English Reformation, Protestantism, translation of the Bible
