Stephani's Hebrew text was based on that of Jacob ben (c. 1470-c.1538) Chayim y. of Tunis (see #5085 - the 1st ed. to present the Massora, D. Bomberg: Venice 1524, 5. f^0. 4 vol.) Fred Schreiber #82 - Biblia Hebraica: Paris 1544-6. R. Estienne's 1st project upon being appointed Royal Printer in Hebrew was the production of a Hebrew O.T. in 4^0 (1539-44) with a large text type cut by Jehan "dit le Picard" Aruoul; while the 4^0 ed. (which was produced for use in the lecture room) was still coming out Estienne began printing the more handy 16^0 pocked ed. in a smaller Hebrew type. (Mortimer I #73, Armstrong 51, 120-21.) Robert Estienne (1503-1559). Paris: 1526-1550. Geneva: 1551-1559.
The Renaissance interest in the classical languages led to the establishment of "tri-lingual" colleges, where the study fo Hebrew was on a par with that of Latin + Greek. The humanist printers attempted to supply the needs of universities throughout Europe. The presses of Frober at Basel + Estienne at Paris stand out in the history of Christian Hebrew typography. In 1539 R. Estienne began to print in installments the books of the Hebrew Bible, to comprise the 1st complete ed. of the Hebrew text published in France. The 1st books issued, the Minor Prophets, include Rabbi David Kimhi's (Kimchi) (Of Narbonne, Provence 1160?-1235?) commentary. Francois Vatable professor of Hebrew at the Univ. of Paris, edited the text. Berkowitz #167+8 R. Estienne 1539-44 24 parts in 4 vol.; 228, 294, 304, 260 leaves respectively. 24x15.8 cm. Each part has a separate title page in Hebrew + Latin with Estienne's olive tree device. Text in large square type; notes in a more cursive Rashi type; text quotations in the notes in a small square type. The large type was cut by Jean Arnoul, called Le Picard* The text is related to Bomberg's 2nd Rabbinic Bible but departs fewquently from it. * and the other 2 fonts might be attributed to the same hand.

- As Calvin's ideas gained influence throughout Europe especially in the late 1540's + early 1550's, many religious refugees from France, England + Italy began to arrive in Geneva. Not only would the city offer them asylum from their enemies, it would allow them to absorb Calvin;s ideas + methods at firsthand. Every refugee was a potential Protestant missionary to his country of origin. -In 1587 Arthur Golding set out to develop a new English technical vocabulary capable of meeting the growing needs of the arts + sciences which drew on Anglo-Saxon rather than classical roots. In every case, the classical alternative would pass into general use despite Golding's vigorous regard action. His mere words failed to catch on within the increasingly classically minded community.
