The Gospel according to Luke in Ulster-Scots
The title page illustration of Luke is taken from the 1603 edition of the Geneva Bible. Originally published in 1560, the Geneva Bible was the first English version to be translated directly from the original languages of Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. It is thought that its translators included John Calvin and John Knox. It was also the first Bible to be printed in Scotland, in 1579. Around 1626, Sir Hugh Montgomery presented the six churches in his Ulster and Scottish lands (Greyabbey, Newtownards, Donaghadee, Comber, Kilmore and Portpatrick) with a copy of the 1603 Barker edition of the Geneva Bible, each of which had the Montgomery Braidstane coat of arms embossed on the cover in gold leaf.
