Overview

The Bible in the Sixteenth Century by David C. Steinmetz

The essays in this book take as their theses that the intellectual and religious life of the 16th century cannot be understood without attention to the preoccupation of 16th century humanists and theologians with the interpretation of the Bible. Topics explored are Jewish exegesis and problems of Old Testament interpretation and the relationship between the Bible and social, political, and institutional history.
