Sad News: The Death of John S. Bowden

Via Viv Rowett

Rev’d Dr J S Bowden, who had been ill for some time, died last night. He was a translator of many books in our field – and much, much more. His funeral will be held at 2 pm, Friday 17th December at All Saints, Highgate. Our sympathy is with his widow Rachel.

Very sad news indeed.  And if you don’t know the name, you probably have benefited from his work.  As Viv noted, he was an extraordinary translator.  He will be missed.

UPDATERobin Baird-Smith has a very nice obituary.
