Chapter Summary

The 1584 Paris Edition of the Syriac New Testament, also the work of Guy, was in some ways the final flowering of the kabbalistic biblical and oriental scholarship one has been considering. Its consideration belongs as a tailpiece to the great edition of the Antwerp Polyglot but, before considering it, this chapter examines the mystical content of other works of Guy which precede the 1584 edition. In 1571 Guy was in Antwerp in July, and Falaise in August. In 1572 he was in Paris in January but back in Antwerp in July to watch his De Ritibus Baptismi through the press. Guy finds support in a Greek Sibylline text, and Saint Denys's conviction that the star over Bethlehem was a similar violation of natural law. He even quotes his own verse on the supernova.
