Shaping the Bible in the Reformation

Books, Scholars and Their Readers in the Sixteenth Century

Series:

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.

International Exchange in the Early Modern Book World presents new research on several aspects of the movement and exchange of books between countries, languages and confessions. It considers elements of the international book trade, the circulation and collection of texts, the practice of translation and the diffusion and exchange of technical and cultural knowledge. Commercial and logistical aspects of the early modern book trade are considered, as are the relationships between local markets and the internationally-minded firms which sought to meet their expectations. The barriers to the movement of books across borders – political, linguistic, confessional, cultural – are explored, as are the means by which these barriers were surmounted.
