Description

This volume illustrates the busy and conflicted career of Vermigli, who left his beloved Italy in 1542, one step ahead of the Inquisition, to spend twenty years in three centers of Reform: Strasbourg, Oxford, and Zurich. This collection serves not only to display the more personal side of Vermigli, but also fills in details that polemical writings alone cannot provide. Here we see both ecclesiastical and pastoral concerns of Vermigli, and we can study the way he approached each in the spirit of humility and earnestness. This volume is a worthy partner and guide to the works presented in other volumes in this series.
