The accessibility of the Reader is enhanced by helpful notes and indexes of topics, classical references, and biblical citations; the introductions to the sixteen chapters, however, are quite terse. All in all, this Reader serves as a splendid invitation to deeper explorations in the Peter Martyr Library.
