Bible's "Chapters and Verses ... who added them?"

"[I]n the 13th century ... the Catholic Archbishop of Canterbury, Stephen Langton, assigned chapter numbers in order to make the reading of the Bible easier.

"The enumeration of the text into verses did not happen until 1551.

"Robert Stephanis, a Protestant former Catholic, classical scholar and printer, published the first such Bible in Paris ..."

Interesting, huh? :)
