Chapter Summary

Properly to locate the production of the Antwerp Polyglot within Spanish traditions of scholarship, this chapter first considers several things: the previous Alcalá Polyglot; the person of Arias Montano as a scholar, as representative of Spanish biblical scholarship, and possibly as a member of the Family of Love; the discussion and ruling of the Council of Trent on bibles; and the Inquisition and censorship. It explores which Spanish elements of this bible were controversial and why, and the extent to which those elements may be considered kabbalistic. The chapter establishes the continuity between the Antwerp Polyglot and the northern scholars who had been involved in the production in Vienna of the 1555 editio princeps of the Syriac New Testament and who are most helpfully characterised as Christian kabbalists.
