He was a committed Gerhardian. [9]Quatuor Evangelicorum Scriptorum Concordia et Locorum. Georgius Calixtus (1586-1656) was a German Melanchthonian Lutheran.

In addition to his Concordia, he wrote commentaries on Exodus, Acts, Romans, Corinthians, and Colossians. [10]Harmoniam quatuor Evangelistarum. Paul Crell (1531-1579) was a German Lutheran theologian, educator, and pastor. He was a committed Gnesio-Lutheran. [11]Evangelicæ historiæ quadripartita Monas, sive Harmonias quatuor Evangelistarum. Gerhardus Mercator (1512-1594) was a renowned Belgic geographer and cartographer. Although he was clearly sympathetic to Lutheranism, he never declared himself, but did move from Catholic Leuven to tolerant Duisburg. [12]Harmonia Evangelica ex Quatuor Evangelistis ita Conscripta. [13]Sebastião Barradas (1543-1615) was a Portuguese Jesuit. He was professor of Scripture at Coimbra and Evora for many years. He published Commentaria in concordiam et historiam evangelicam.

Haræus is most remembered for his historical works on the Dutch Revolt. [18] John de la Haye (1593-1661) was a Franciscan philosopher, theologian, and orator. Although he wrote commentaries on Genesis, Exodus, and Revelation, his principal contribution to the field of exegesis is his collation of the comments of others in his Biblia Magna and Biblia Maxima. [19] Peter Lombard (c. 1096-c. 1164), although of relatively humble birth, became a renowned theologian in Paris. His Four Books of Sentences served as a standard theological text at medieval universities. He also wrote commentaries on the Job, Psalms, Song of Solomon, the Pauline Epistles, and the Harmony of the Gospels. [20]Concordia quatuor Evangelistarum. Guido de Perpiniano (c. 1260-1342) served as Prior General of the Carmelites (1318), and as Bishop of Mallorca and Elne.
