Let the Interpreters of the Books of the Old Testament be added.

[1] Ephræm Syrus was the most influential Syriac Church Father of the fourth century. From monastic seclusion, he composed commentaries on most of the books of the Old Testament, which commentaries demonstrate a knowledge of both the Syriac Peshitta and the Hebrew original. [2] Gennadius I (died 471) served as Patriarch of Constantinople. He was heavily influenced by the literal Antiochean exegesis. Fragments of his works on Genesis, Exodus, Psalms, Daniel, Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, and Hebrews survive. [3]Diatribe de mille annis apocalypticis, non illis Chiliastarum et Phantastarum, sed beatorum Danielis et Johannis. [4]Die siebzig wochen des Propheten Daniels erklärt. Daniel Engelhardt (1569-1635) was a German Reformed minister. He served as Superintendent of Marburg, and as a delegate to the Synod of Dort. Angelocrator is remembered for his work in chronology. [5]Daniel sapientissimus Dei propheta, qui a vetustis polyhistor, id est, multiscius est dictus. [6]Tractatus de Antichristo, recens editus: In quo Antichristiani regni locus, tempus, forma, ministri, fulcimenta, progressio, et tandem exitium, et interitus ex Dei verbo demonstratur, ubi etiam aliquot difficiles antea et obscuri tum Danielis, tum Apocalypseos loci perspicue jam explicantur. [7]Prophetia Halieutica nova et admiranda, ad Danielis et sacræ apocalypseos calculum chronographicum, divina ope nunc primum in lucem productum, revocata. Raphael Eglinus (1559-1622) was a Swiss Reformed theologian, serving as Professor of New Testament at Zurich (1592), and of Theology at Marburg (1606-1622). Although influential in establishing Reformed theology in Germany, he was eccentric, obsessing over the study of theosophy and alchemy. [8]Versio et Notæ ad Paraphrasin Josephi Jachiadæ in Danielem. [9]Prælectiones in Prophetiam Danielis. Lucas Gernler (1625-1675) was a Swiss Reformed theologian, serving as Professor of Theology at Basel (1656). [10] Conrad Graser (1557-1613) was a German Reformed theologian, serving as Professor of Theology at Thorn. He wrote Historiam Antichristi Magni, Apocalypseos Explicationem, and Explicationem in Caput 9 Danielis. [11]Explanatio Danielis quinque primorum capitum. [12]Uitlegginge van den propheet Daniel. Balthasar Bekker (1634-1698) was a Dutch minister, although ultimately deposed. He was a proponent of Cartesian Rationalism, arguing that philosophy and theology must be kept in separate spheres, the former for the exploration of natural truths, and the latter for the exploration of supernatural truths of Scripture. [13]The whole prophecie of Daniel explained. Ephraim Huit (c. 1593-1644) was a Puritan pastor, beginning his career in England, but ending it in the New World. [14]The exposicion of Daniel the Prophete gathered oute of Philip Melanchton, Johan Ecolampadius, Conrade Pellicane, and out of Johan Draconite. George Joye (c. 1495-1553) was a Roman Catholic priest, who early embraced the doctrines of the Reformation. He was exiled, and took up residence in Antwerp, producing the first Primer in English (now lost), and English translations of portions of the Old Testament. [15] Although most remembered for his work on John’s Apocalypse, The Key of the Revelation, and his eschatological views, Joseph Mede (1586-1638) treats texts spanning the entire Bible in his Works. Mede was first a student, and then a fellow, tutor, and Reader of Greek, at Christ’s College, Cambridge. [16]The Visions and Prophecies of Daniel expounded, wherein the mistakes of former interpreters are modestly discovered and the true meaning of the text made plain. Thomas Parker (1595-1677) was an English nonconformist educator. He settled in Newbury Massachusetts (1634), and served as Pastor there. [17]The period of the Persian monarchie: Wherein sundry places of Ezra, Nehemiah and Daniel are cleered. [18]De IV summis imperiis seu monarchiis, e prophetia Danielis dissertatio. [19]Der Prophet Daniel, und die Offenbarung Johannis. [20] Luis de Alcasar (1554-1613) is said to be the forerunner of modern preterism. He spent forty years writing Vestigationew Arcani Sensus in Apocalypsi, a massive, nine hundred page commentary on Revelation. Alcasar also wrote In eas Veteris Testamenti partes quas respicit Apocalypsis.
