At the Conference, under the reign of King James I of England (formerly James VI of Scotland) in 1604, some leading Puritans had a chance to present to the king their ideas for change in the Church of England. But James dismissed most of their opinions rather rudely. On only one point did he consent to the demands of the Puritans. He was willing to have a new translation of the Scriptures made. From this decision came what we call the King James version of the Bible.
