Commentary on the Lamentations of the Prophet Jeremiah

Synopsis

Peter Martyr Vermigli's earliest biblical commentary to survive is his lectures on the Book of Lamentations. As a refugee from Catholic Italy, Martyr sympathises with the Hebrew poet, who looks over the devastation of Jerusalem. The Introduction gives a précis of Christian Hebraism and pays particular attention to the Bomberg Bible. The notes highlight Martyr's allusions to the Jewish commentators of that Bible.
