Series: Peter Martyr Library, Sixteenth Century Essays & Studies

This volume is devoted to Vermigli's philosophical writings, consisting of topics from commentaries with sections on "reason and revelation," "body and soul," "knowledge of God," "providence, miracles, and responsibility," and "freewill and predestination." Peter Martyr Vermigli (1499-1562) is considered to be one of the most important Italian reformers of the early modern period. Martyr is the subject of renewed interest for historical and theological scholars. The Peter Martyr Library, a series of critical English translations of the chief works of Peter Martyr Vermigli, allows his own words in context to speak for themselves.
