The New Testament commentaries by French Protestant Reformer Théodore de Bèze, or Beza (1519-1605). The commentaries expound on all kinds of exegetical, text-critical and translational difficulties while making numerous references to the preceding scholarship of Erasmus, Valla, Lefèvre and other contemporaries. Likewise Beza consults the Fathers, Septuagint and Classical Latin writers for linguistic purposes. First published in 1556, the Annotationes went through three major revisions after 1580. In these exegetical and theological notes, Beza defended reformed doctrine and debated points of grammar and syntax with biblical scholarship, both ancient and modern.)
