Over the years Bacon gathered around himself a group of writers who were responsible for almost all of the Elizabethan literature. Some of these were part of a “secret society” he called “The Knights of the Helmet,” which had as its goal the advancement of learning by expanding the English language and creating a new literature written not in Latin but in words that Englishmen could understand. Bacon also organized the translation of the King James Version of the Bible, determined that the common people should have the benefit of reading God’s Word for themselves.
