What is your evidence that much of the population of England was able to

Jail records from the 1830s onwards <G> Also various history books
which I'm not going to dig out right now, but I'm sure you have plenty
of time to find them for yourself.
What is your evidence that much of the population could afford a Bible?
I didn't say they *owned* a Bible :)) I said they would have been
encouraged to read it.
There were two family bibles in my family, one belonging to an ag lab
and the other to a shoemaker.

If the IPS has its way, then, yes!!
