Leaf from a Stephanus Latin Bible
Stephanus, Roberto , 1503-1559
Third octavo edition of the Latin Bible issued by the famous family of scholar printers, the Stephani or Estiennes. This issue, the work of the most eminent scholar of his day, Roberto Stephanus, is generally considered to be the earliest Bible to divide the test into numbered verses. Because his writings and publications were frequently censored and prohibited by the Theological Faculty of Paris, Robert Stephanus, shortly after the death of his royal patron, Francis I, moved his press to Geneva, where the Bible was printed.
