Scholars and students interested in early modern religious and intellectual history, biblical interpretation and translation, the Reformation and the history of the Book.
“The Bible industry of the sixteenth century is one that manifests different forms of agency: those of the textualist, the translator, the interpreter, the printer, the bookseller, and many others besides. The essays in Gordon and McLean’s volume tell us much about these roles, and the social context in which they were enacted. The territory is familiar to those with an interest in early modern Bible studies, but the essays explore unfamiliar corners of it.”
