Laurence Tomson


Laurence Tomson

Laurence Tomson (1539-1608) revised both the text and the annotations of the New Testament of the Geneva Bible. His revised edition appeared in 1576. Tomson was a Calvinist, and his annotations reflect that system of theology.

Tomson was the personal secretary of Sir Francis Walsingham, the secretary of state to Elizabeth I of England. During the reign of Mary I he had been lecturer in Hebrew at the University of Geneva.
