The 25 chapters of this volume were first presented at an international conference called The new hermeneutics of Peter Martyr Vermigli (1499-1562), held at McGill U. in Montreal, Canada in August 2007. Written by historians and church historians in Switzerland, Canada, the Netherlands, the UK, and the US, the papers are grouped into sections corresponding to Vermigli's career--with separate chapters for Italy, Strasbourg, Oxford, and Zurich--his learning, biblical commentaries, theology, and reception. Fittingly for a companion, the volume's chapters are broad in their focus, with individual chapters, for example, on Vermigli's classical christology, his ecclesiology, eucharistic theology, political theology, and his exegesis and theological method. His study of Hebrew and his approach to humanism, and his influence on the reformation in France are described in separate chapters. A thorough bibliography is included, completing the volume as a first-rate resource. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
