Chapter Summary

As most other theologians of the Christian tradition, Peter Martyr Vermigli also occupied himself with the book of Psalms. Among the reformers of the 16th century this was a favourite book of the Scriptures for exegesis, preaching and meditation. All major reformers wrote a commentary on this book and with that they stand in a long patristic and medieval tradition. Vermigli's Preces distinguish themselves from the existing tradition in the sense that he did not write a commentary, but expressed and wrote down prayers on the basis of the Psalms. It is most likely that these prayers were written during the end of his first stay in Strasbourg, where he lived from December 1542 until October 1547.
