tally, is compromised by the fact that names and references occurring in his extensive footnotes are not included.) Austin interprets Tremellius' defensive letter as evidence of his persisting unease about his Jewish past, but Aubert's notes point to a more orthodox Calvinistic concern. Though the original market for his Talmud was to have been a Jewish one, printer Froben was covering his bases. In addition to securing the services of local Reformed examiner Pierre Chevallier, Froben's edition was also expurgated by the Venetian Inquisitor Marco Marino, and it appeared with the imprimatur of the Council of Trent! Burnett's article was written before Tremellius' letter to Bèze was made available, so that he was unaware of Tremellius' role in censoring at least part of the edition and possibly suggesting arguments to Froben as to its usefulness to Christian scholars, topics inferable from the letter. John Tedeschi's monumental 1047-page critical bibliography The Italian Reformation of the Sixteenth Century and the Diffusion of Renaissance Culture (Ferrara, Panini, 2000), missing from Austin's otherwise meticulous bibliography, would only have added half a dozen items on Tremellius, but it is an essential resource for Italy in the early modern period.
