Sebastian Castellio wrote his Annotation on Rom 9 during stormy times. After
the trial against Miguel Servetus and the ensuing polemic from Castellio and
his allies against it, Geneva came to see Sebastian Castellio as a threat
against the reformation. His Annotation on Rom 9 probably confirmed this
verdict. Castellio used it to speak out against John Calvin’s doctrine on
predestination and to elaborate on his own ideas about the perfectibility of
Castellio published his Annotation on Rom 9 only once, in his 1554 Latin
Bible. In subsequent editions it was replaced by an asterisk and the short
remark “maior serviet minori.” Many scholars assumed that it was censorship of
Castellio’s text and even took it for granted that it was erased from
Castellio’s Bible. But that is certainly not what happened: censorship was
probably less severe than scholars have so often assumed. This critical
edition together with the English translation makes Castellio’s first
polemical writing on predestination easily accessible. The introduction
describes the context in which Castellio wrote his Bible and elaborates on his
biblical scholarship.
