Roger Pearse discusses the King James Version and provides a good deal of interesting material about the translation principles and procedures behind it.
AWOL highlights the open access “Digital Biblical Studies” series:
The series aims to publish the latest research at the intersection of Digital Humanities and Biblical Studies, Ancient Judaism, and Early Christianity in order to demonstrate the transformation of research, teaching, cognition and the economy of knowledge in digital culture. In particular, DBS investigates and evaluates the practices and methodologies of Digital Humanities as applied to texts, inscriptions, archaeological data, and scholarship related to these fields.
