James commissioned a new translation of the Bible into English in 1604, though he took no direct part in the work which was done by 54 scholars under the oversight of Archbishop Richard Bancroft. The new translation, completed in 1611, came to be known as the King James Version or Authorized Version and is often represented as KJV.
MacBeth by Shakespeare was also indirectly influenced by James' tastes and background, being a turn to Scottish history as well as introducing witches who had been known as one of James' greatest fears.
