Vermigli also affirmed the necessity of faith for an efficacious reception of the sacraments. According to Dr Opitz, the particularity of Vermigli’s heremeneutic in this larger context is that he combines a very high exegetical approach, which tries to do justice to the biblical proof texts on the grounds of his humanistic education, with a great knowledge of and esteem for the scholastic and patristic traditions, an analytical and logical clarity which surpasses most of his colleagues, and an ‘ecumenical’ intention.

To be sure, Vermigli’s intellectual and theological development did not take place without rupture or correction. But we must not lose sight of the formative power of those years, if we wish to rightly understand the rest of Martyr’s life. Luigi Santini1 and particularly Philip McNair2 have helped to redress this imbalance. M. M.

Thanks to McNair’s careful research, we know that Vermigli was christened Piero Mariano on September 8th, 1499 in Florence to a lower middle-class family and not, as less well-informed biographers have written (and sometimes still write) to nobility in 1500. Well researched are the socio-cultural questions pertaining to his family background, childhood and schooling. We know that he spent the formative years of his youth in Florence, where he was able to profit from the intellectual, scientific and artistic achievements of Florentine humanism.
