But in a significant number of texts the Authorized Version of 1611
varies considerably from the Bibles of Shakespeare's day.
They are seldom printed in Protestant Bibles, but, in the Authorized Version of 1611
, they are given immediately after the Old Testament.
Examples of Protestant adaptation of recusant texts include the 1620 William Barrett version of Robert Southwell's Short Rule of Good Life of 1595-7, and the use of over 3,000 readings from the Rheims New Testament in the compilation of the Authorized Version of 1611
