The period examined in the thesis, as indicated by the title, is the sixteenth century. In reality, and more precisely, the period opens in 1524 when Robert Wakefield's first work was published and closes with the publication of the Authorised Version of the Bible in 1611, which, - though a seventeenth-century work, is, in effect, the consummation of sixteenth-century scholarship. Similarly, scholars whose works were produced in the early years of the seventeenth century, but whose scholarship derives from studies begun in the sixteenth are included as contributors to the Hebrew scholarship of this period. In the ninth chapter, Hebrew studies in Scotland and Ireland are reviewed in association with the activities at their universities.
