Critici Sacri was intended as a companion for the Polyglot Bible, published by Bishop Walton, in 1657. Combining the works of many of the best English and continental scholars of the sixteenth and seventeeth centuries, John Pearson, archdeacon of Surrey at the time, produced "the most important collection of Biblical critics ever made....In point of size the work of Poole has advantages but no man man who is acquainted with both works will ever prefer the Synopsis to the original," (Clarke, Holy Bible, 1837.) Contains the entire annotations of Munster, Vatabalus, Castalio, Clarius, Drusius, and Grotius on all or nearly all of the Old Testament, Fagius on the Chaldaic Paraphrase of the Pentateuch, and the first four chapters of Genesis; the commentaries of Masius on Joshua; Codurcus'; annotations on Job; Pricaeus on the Psalms; Bayne on the Proverbs; Forerius' commentary on Isaiah; Lively on Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, and Jonah; Badwell on the Apocrypha; Hoeschel on Ecclesiastes, and more. For the New Testament, there are the collations of Valla, with the animadversions of Revius, Erasmus' annotations, commentaries by Vatabalus, Castalio, Clarius, Zegerus, Grotius, Munster, Drusius, Scaliger, Casaubon, Cameron, Lud. Capellus, Jac. Capellus, Gualtperius, Schultetus, and Pricaeus. Also included are philological tracts and dissertations including John Gregory's Notes and Observations; Fagius's Comparison of the principal Translations of the Old Testament; Cartwright's Mellijicium Ebraicum; Drusius on the Mandrakes; Jos. Scaliger and Amama on Tythes; Lud. Capellus on the Vow of Jephthah and Corban; Pithoeus De Latinis Bibliorum Interpretationibus; Hosti- us De fabrica Arcae Ngae; Rittershusius De Jure Asylorum; A Hat ius De Engastrymutho; Montanus on Jewish Antiquities; Bertram and Cunaeus on the Hebrew Republic; Waser on the ancient Coins and Measures of the Hebrews, Chaldeans, and Syrians; and much more. This is the second and best edition, much augmented from the first of 1660. Typographically, as well as textually, the work exceeds that of the first Englsh edition having been the concerted effort of six Dutch publishers and booksellers (five from Amsterdam and one from Utrecht), with at least two doing the bulk of the printing including Hendrik Wetstein. Contains a rare variant of Benedict Arias Montanus' Sacrae Geographiae Tabula double hemisphere world map from the Polyglot Bible, showing how Noah's three sons repopulated the world; this version is unique in containing two scene: one of Sunlight and the Garden of Eden and one depicting the darkness and the deluge. Brunet II, 426. Orme, Bibliotheca Biblica 128. Walch IV, 421. De Bure 157.
