The First Spanish Bible

January 10, 2012

The First Spanish Bible. Translated by Cassiodoro de Reina (c. 1520 – 1594), a Spanish Reformer, and native of Seville, who escaped from Spain about 1577. His translation of the Old Testament is based on the Hebrew, for which purpose he followed mainly the Latin translation of Sanctes Pagninus (though he evidently had a knowledge of Hebrew). For the New Testament, he seems to have expected to incorporate a version which in 1567 was being printed in Paris; and he was obliged to prepare his own translation, basing it on the Greek editions in print.

    Some of the real old versions are hard to understand. Language and word meanings do change.
