Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an introduction to this 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 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 chapters in the book begin with Vermigli's international career and then address in turn his hermeneutical method, his biblical commentaries, his theological loci, and finally the reception and influence of his thought. In his chapter on Vermigli and the Schola Tigurina, Emidio Campi pursues the narrative of reformer's career to its final phase in Zurich from 1556 until his death in 1562. Frank James focuses on Vermigli's most extensive treatment of justification and its relation to sanctification as articulated in his Romans locus.
