Neophytos Vamvas ( Greek: Νεόφυτος Βάμβας; 1770 – 1856) was a cleric, philosopher, philologist, author, professor, and dean. He had the conviction that the Bible should be translated into modern Greek in order to become property of the people. After having translated it, Vamvas faced fierce conflicts and disagreement, the so called Neophytos Incident, that ultimately did not allow his effort to be established.
