Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of names, terms and concepts that occur in the book A Companion to Peter Martyr Vermigli. The central aim of the book is to examine the unique contribution of the great Florentine reformer Peter Martyr Vermigli (1499-1562) to the emerging hermeneutics and exegesis of Early Modern Europe, where scholars, philosophers, and theologians of the Renaissance and Reformation engaged classical theories of interpretation with new methods drawn from Humanism and Hebraism. The revival of classical learning in the Renaissance inspired a renewed interest not only in the study of Greek letters but also in the language of the Hebrew Bible. For Christian humanists the study of Hebrew was put on par with that of Greek and Latin. 'Trilingual colleges' where Hebrew, Greek, and Latin were taught were established in France, England, Germany, Italy, and elsewhere.

Keywords: Christian humanists; Hebrew Bible; Peter Martyr Vermigli; Trilingual colleges
