Shaping the Bible in the Reformation

Books, Scholars and Their Readers in the Sixteenth Century

Series:

Edited by Bruce Gordon and Matthew McLean

This volume presents significant new research on several
aspects of the late mediaeval and early modern Bible. These
essays consider aspects of Bible scholarship and translation,
illustration and production, its uses for lay devotion and in
theological controversy. Inquiring into the ways in which
scholars gave new forms to their Bibles and their readers
received their work, this book considers the contribution of
key figures like Castellio, Bibliander and Tremellius, Piscator
and Calov, the exegetical controversies between centres
of Reformed learning and among the theologians of the
Louvain. It encompasses biblical illustration in the Low
Countries and the use of maps in the Geneva Bible, and
considers the practice of biblical translation, and the strategies by which new versions were justified.
