Jerry H. Bentley indicates that the humanists caused an intensive reorientation within the Western culture of recent testomony experiences. He reveals that the humanists' tools either expected and motivated later New testomony scholarship.

The humanists rejected the medieval perform of learning the hot testomony purely in Latin translation and studying it according to preconceived theological standards. as an alternative, they insisted that New testomony reports be in line with the unique Greek textual content, and so they hired linguistic, old, and philological standards in explaining the scriptures. This examine rests on an research of the hot testomony manuscripts that the humanists consulted and of the recent testomony variations, translations, annotations, an commentaries that they prepared.
