THE CORDOVA INDEX OF 1554. This is described on its title-page as:1 " Censura Generalis contra errores, quibus recentes haeretici Sacram Scriptorem asperserunt, edita a suprcmo senatu Inquisitionis adversus hereticam provitatem et apostasiam in Hispania, et aliis regnis, et dominiis Caasareae Majestatis constituto." It was printed at Cordova by Francisco Ferdinand, and was sold for forty maravedas. The volume contains an edict of the King (printed in Spanish) approving the list as constituted; a statement (printed in Latin) from Ferdinand, Archbishop and Inquisitor-General, of the reasons for the condemnation of the heretical interpretations that had been permitted to obscure or to dishonour certain passages of the Scriptures and also other Sacred writings; the same printed in Spanish; an Introduction (Prmfatia) to the list of condemned texts; a list of the editions of the Bible which at this time call for correction and condemnation. The list comprises forty-seven editions. Of these, twenty-eight are printed in Lyons, eight in Paris, six in Basel, three in Venice, one in Antwerp and one in T igurium. The Paris editions include those of Robert Estienne, who was at this time engaged in his long fight with the Sorbonne. The Lyons list contains the title of the great Bible of Hugo, later reprinted by Koberger in Nuremberg. The schedule of Bibles is followed by a list of one hundred and thirty texts from the Old and New Testaments, together with the heretical interpretations and the orthodox refntations and corrections of these. more
