About this item

Thoroughly revising and expanding her 2015 PhD dissertation at Groningen University, Haan examines the new Latin translation of the New Testament by Florentine humanist Manetti (1396-1459). He wrote it at the Vatican court, encouraged and facilitated by Pope Nicholas V (1447-55), but the translation was never published, and survives only in two manuscripts. It is the first Latin translation since Jerome produced the Vulgate around 400, and predates Erasmus' Novum Instrumentum by half a century, she says, and can serve as a test case for conventional views of pre-Reformation Biblical scholarship as well as illuminating translation norms of 14th-century Italy.
