Chapter Summary

Guy Lefèvre de la Boderie was a pupil of Postel and in a sense became his representative in the production of the Antwerp Polyglot. After the author has considered Guy's contribution to the Antwerp Polyglot and considered that bible and its fate in some detail, he traces the continuity in world-view and scholarship between Guy's two editions, the Antwerp Polyglot and that of 1584, and to observe the afterlife of Postel's kabbalistic legacy even beyond his death. In 1570 Guy worked on his Dictionarium, and Plantin wrote repeatedly to Masius insisting that Guy was no rival. Having seen that Plantin had probably originally intended that Masius should take a large part in the project, but subsequently was persuaded that Masius's reputation for heterodoxy prohibited this, one can perhaps understand his delicacy in handling Masius's sensitivities.

Keywords: Antwerp Polyglot; Guy Lefèvre de la Boderie; Postel's kabbalistic legacy
