La Bibbia. Cioè, i libri del Vecchio, e del Nuovo Testamento.
[Geneva: Giovanni Tornesio], 1607.
This first edition of the Italian Bible translated from the Hebrew and Greek was prepared by Giovanni Diodati (1576–1649), a professor of theology at the University of Geneva. Rejected by seventeenth-century Church authorities in Italy, Diodati’s version remains the basis for the Bibles used by Italian Protestants today.
