Chapter Summary

In conversation with a range of scholars interpreting Peter Martyr Vermigli's commentaries and treatises, especially those works on his commentary on 1 Corinthians, this chapter reveals the scope of Vermigli's optic when thinking about worship, prayer, and work of the Holy Spirit in the Christian life. It examines its comments on a key issue in Vermgli's New Testament exegetical work-the practical effects of a proper understanding of the relationship between Word and Spirit in worship. In this commentary, particularly when touching on the subject of different languages, Vermigli's concern for piety is wrapped together with his concern to understand the use of language by the Holy Spirit. His critique focuses on the improper use of foreign languages by the Roman Catholics, especially the use of Latin during the Mass. Any reading of Vermigli's commentary is aided by his preface to the commentary in which he speaks of his hermeneutical principles.
