"The first edition of the Bible known as 'Matthew's version' ... welds together the best work of Tyndale and Coverdale. ... Thomas Matthew is commonly treated as a pseudonym of John Rogers (1500?-1555), ... [whose] own share in the work was probably confined to translating the prayer of Manasses ... and the general task of editing the materials at his disposal, and preparing the marginal notes ... " (Herbert).
