Visit to site of execution of an English Martyr - William Tyndale

Visit to site of execution of an English Martyr - William TyndaleWhilst in Brussels, Illustrious Knight Mike Neville, the Divisional Eusebius, visited the site where William Tyndale was executed in 1536 on the orders of Henry VIII. He was strangled then burnt - his crime? Translating the Bible into English. For masons, he took the Hebrew word YHWH and Anglicised it to "Jehovah" and much of the King James's Version of the Bible, used in most lodges and conclaves, is based on Tyndale's translation. The castle at Vilvoorde, where he was imprisoned, is long gone - it is now a residential area (at least it is Castle Street). His ashes were thrown into the nearby River Zenne. Whilst in his cell, he would have heard the bell of the nearby church, which is still standing. A great Englishman.
