Letter "J" during Bacon's life? YES!


Recommended Posts

This is an argument that has been happening for a couple years or so that I know of. Thank you to Rick Wagner for posting his article "Bacon’s Use of Gematria and the 26 Letter Alphabet" in December.

I'd like to submit an article I found online as well called, "SOME NOTES ON THE LETTERS i, j , u AND v IN SIXTEENTH CENTURY PRINTING." by R.B. McKerrow. It is attached.

Plus here are a couple images available to see also:

And from my own copy of Bacon's Essay's dated 1625:

So, is the argument over? The letter "J" did exist during Bacon's lifetime.
