2016.1 release of OEB

Jun 1, 2016

We’re pleased to announce a new release of the OEB, including the New Testament and Psalms and available from the front page of the Open English Bible website at

We have dedicated this release to Konrad Sweynheym and Arnold Pannartz, who were the first printers (in around 1470) to print a Bible in Roman text and not Blackletter. Better reading through technology!

Some of the improvements include:

We hope you like this release. We will do another release in two months time (1 August) or sooner if we come across an issue that can’t wait (the Wicked Bible Scenario).

Refreshing the OEB website

Dec 7, 2015

The OEB website has become a little bit, um, venerable over the last couple of years. Although it was always clean and simple, it wasn’t up to date with the latest responsive designs needed for the large numbers of people reading on their mobile phones and tablets.

So the time was right for a refresh. The design has stayed mostly the same, but the site itself is now built using Foundation and Hugo and all the sources are hosted on Github - so if you have improvements (or just find the inevitable speling mistake) then you can help us fix it.

We hope you like it! Stay tuned for more updates…
