"Novum Instrumentum omne" was the first New Testament published in Europe. Desiderius Erasmus (1466–1536) known as Erasmus Roterodamus (Erasmus Rotterdam) used several Greek manuscripts preserved in Basel, and verses from the Apocalypse in the Latin Vulgate.
Erasmus contacted the publisher Johann Froben during a visit to Basel in 1514. Most likely, he would have initially planned to include the Greek text, removed immediately, to demonstrate the superiority of his Latin version.
With this book he points the way to a new hermeneutics in the humanities. The revolutionary idea is to study the text of the Bible as a historical text and then verify it from the point of view of textual criticism, subjecting the Vulgate to the original Greek.
