Pious and Learned Annotations Upon the Holy Bible
Plainly Expounding the Most Difficult Places Thereof By that Godly and Famous Divine, Mr. John Diodati, Late Minister of the Gospel in Geneva (third edition [in three volumes], 1651)
The title continues: "Corrected and much augmented, with additional notes of the same author, throughout the whole work. And the analysis upon each several book of the Old and New Testament, setting down the chief heads contained therein, being very much enlarged, is now fully completed in this third edition." "In fine, here are choice Meditations, and sound expositions, more to be valued then refined gold... and the choicest subject the world ever afforded, being Jesus Christ and him crucified, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life" (Translator from "To the Reader"). Concerning Diodati, Darling (Cyclopaedia Bibliographica, p. 918) writes, "Born at Geneva 1576; died 1640. This celebrated Italian Protestant divine, belonging to a noble family from Lucca in Italy, is known chiefly by his biblical works, and by his translation of Father Paul's History of the Council of Trent into French. He was sent in 1618 by the Church of Geneva to the Synod of Dort. His translation of the Bible into Italian is still considered one of the best."
