William Tyndale was executed for so called "heresy," his chief offense being that he had translated the holy scriptures from their original Greek into English, being the first man to do so. The Tyndale New Testament would go on to influence the Geneva Bible, and later the King James Version of 1611. It is said that 84% of the KJV is based on the work of Tyndale.

AnswerNo. William Tyndale (c 1491 - 1536) translated the Bible into English, a crime for which he was executed. Much of the King James Version is based on Tyndale's work.

No William Tyndale did not have a fair trial. The church told him what he did "wrong",Let him have a moment to speak, then called him a heretic and burnt him at the stake.
