The Bible, the Jews, and the Inquisition in Sixteenth-Century Spain

The sixteenth century was a great age for biblical studies. In Spain, where translations were forbidden, and the Vulgate was the only version approved for use by the faithful, Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros would change the course of biblical studies both at home and across the whole of Europe. This presentation by Professor of Medieval Spanish Literature Luis Cortest of the University of Oklahoma will examine the complicated story of scholars, linguists, and biblical commentators working on polyglot Bibles under the watchful eye of the Spanish Inquisition.
