Written on the Heart Summary

Written on the Heart by David Edgar

Across an 80-year divide, two men translate the word of God into the English tongue. For one, it means death at the stake. For the other, it could mean an archbishop's mitre. David Edgar's historical drama explores biblical translation, religious ideals, and the price of social peace.
