Chapter Summary

Vermigli was as powerful a preacher as he was a scholar. Vermigli studied in the university in both Bologna and Padua for ten years in order to become a teacher. Emidio Campi, Alessandro Pastore and Marcantonio Flaminio are all persuaded that Vermigli is an exemplary product of the Hebraist culture in Renaissance Italy. This chapter investigates this question by making three further inquires: first, the state of learning Hebrew in Italy at the beginning of the sixteenth century; secondly, the notably high level of interest in studying the Psalms; and finally, Vermigli's annotations on his own copies of the Rabbinic Bibles. It concludes with some remarks on Vermigli's reading and use of the commentaries of the medieval rabbis.
