Footnotes

  • David Griffiths (1792-1863) one of the first Christian missionaries and Biblical translators in Madagascar was amongst those expelled in 1835 during a fierce period of anti-Christian feeling - "A number of Griffiths's colleagues felt that his missionary zeal and tactlessness had been in part the reason for the expulsion...In 1852, hoping to renew the mission in Madagascar, the London society asked Griffiths...to revise the scriptures." He spent five years on the task, this New Testament being the first of the new publication.
