New versions of national Bibles: between the modernization and traditional text

Cover Page


The present paper deals with some aspects connected with the creation of the new versions of the so-called “national Bibles” ( Luther Bible , King James Bible ...). It is mentioned, that in the 20th century different reasons can be connected with the attempts of their revision ( New King James Version , Lutherbible 1984 ...). To some extent this tendency may be postulated also towards the Lutherbible 2017 , published in 2016 for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. As opposed to their predecessors its creators underline their intention to recede from modernization and return to the original language of Luther. But such return inevitably is relative enough.
