Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the relationship between Christian Hebraism and early printed lay Bibles and also on Dutch Bibles. For the editions of the New Testament in the second quarter of the sixteenth century, it is easy to survey the situation. For the Old Testament, the situation was much more complex because the Hebrew source text was less easily available, and, for various reasons, less accessible. In general printers and publishers of Dutch Bibles from the first half of the sixteenth century seriously aimed to publish a Bible edition that presented a 'pure' text, that had been freshly translated from the Hebrew and/or Greek text, or at least corrected after such text.
