Library amen to Bible work

Have your say

The National Library of Scotland is marking the 30th anniversary of the translation of the New Testament into Scots.

William Lorimer’s adaptation in 1983 marked a linguistic first and received praise in reviews from around the world.

The National Library will present a discussion between Lorimer’s granddaughter, Christina Lorimer, and novelist James Robertson. Michael Hance, director of the Scots Language Centre, will chair the event, on Thursday at 6pm.
