Notes on history of the first Korean Translation of the New Testament.

Shchepinina Polina N.

The history of the first translation of the New Testament into the Korean language covers more than 10  years  — from 1876  till 1887. The article follows the chronological principle of the translation process, deals with main characteristics of the process and makes its focus on the attribution of the authorship of the translation. The official author of the translation is considered to be John Ross — a Protestant missionary from the United Presbyterian Church of Scotland, but the question keeps to be open since the great part of the translation work was carried out by many Korean translations, whose names are still remain unknown. The article supplies at least a partial answer to it.
