La Genèse, 1555

Edited by Jacques CHAURAND, Nicole GUEUNIER, Carine SKUPIEN DEKENS, With Max ENGAMMARE

0.00 CHF tax incl.

A single edition, published in 1555, with only twenty copies remaining through the world. A single printer, Jean Hervage, of Basle. The only really new translation to be made in the XVIth century ? So many distinctive features make Sébastien Castellion’s translation a quite exceptional work, one that has been criticised or overlooked for far too long. In the first book, appearing today, the editors have aimed at shedding a new light on this neglected translation , so that it appears in all its exactness and modernity. Analysing the relationship between the source and target languages, they show how the defender of tolerance has succeeded in forging an instrument both worthy of the Sacred Scriptures and accessible to the " idiots ", to whom the translator wanted to transmit the biblical message in all its richness. This first modern edition of Genesis translated by Sébastien Castellion at long last lifts the veil that has shrouded his work for nearly five centuries.
