The '''Revised Version''' ('''RV''') or '''English Revised Version''' ('''ERV''') of the [[Bible]] is a late 19th-century British revision of the [[King James Version]]. It was the first and remains the only officially authorised and recognised revision of the King James Version in Britain. The work was entrusted to over 50 scholars from various denominations in Britain. American scholars were invited to co-operate, by correspondence.<ref name="Revised Version - CAMBRIDGE">Revised Version - CAMBRIDGE - At the University Press - London: Cambridge University Press, 200 Euston Road, N.W., Synopsis</ref> The [[New Testament]] was published in 1881, the [[Old Testament]] in 1885, and the [[Apocrypha]] in 1894.<ref name="Revised Version - CAMBRIDGE"/> The best known of the translation committee members were [[Brooke Foss Westcott]] and [[Fenton John Anthony Hort]]; their fiercest critic of that period was [[John William Burgon]]. It should be noted that this version of the bible was based on what they (Westcott and Anthony) claimed to be oldest manuscripts available. The "oldest manuscripts" claimed to have been found by C.V. Tischendorf. Tischendorf claims were debated as false by C. Simonides who claimed to have written the manuscripts for Czar Nicholas of Russia. This version of the bible may not be the wholly inspired word of God but work of men commissioned by the papacy to corrupt the word of God for their gain and enslavement of followers to the papacy. Man was created to worship his creator, God, and not a created being like the pope.
