SKU: 11408 Marlorat, Augustin Category:

(8) 530 (26) p. Rebound half Leather with raised bands, Folio (Text-block very slightly browned. Provenance: From the library of Nicolaas Barkey (1709-1788) with his name written on the titlepage. Exegetical commentary on the book of Isaiah by French Reformer and martyr Augustine Marlorat (1506-1562). Marlorat ministered to a number of congregations and represented the French Protestants at the Colloquy of Poissy in 1561 together with Beza and Vermigli in debate against the Roman Catholic theologians from the Sorbonne. His works were chiefly commentaries on the Holy Scriptures, some of them published after his death. He also prepared the indices for Calvin’s Institutes and is greatly known for the marginal notes and arguments which were used in the New Testament of later Deux Aes translations of the Bible. Derived from Marlorat’s works they had to replace Luther’s marginal notes to give the Bible a more calvinistic character. Marlorat’s Expositiones are mostly literal compilations, put together on the same model. Each chapter and verse is commented by selected passages or phrases from some ancient but most contemporary commentators. The passages are identified by initials to which Marlorat himself provides the key at the end of the prelims. For this volume on Isaiah he used the comments of Oecolampadius, Zwingli, Luther, Pellikan, Calvin, Musculus, Vatable and himself. Illustrated with a large woodcut portrait of the author on the titlepage.)
