Cipriano de Valera: Zeal for Salvation of His Countrymen

Lucid Theology

cipriano-de-valeraCipriano de Valera is not a name often recognized today, but he was a monumental figure for the number of Protestants exiled from from their native Spain under the Inquisition. In 1597 he translated Calvin’s Institutes into Spanish. In his preface his concluded with this exhortation:

“Therefore, open your eyes, O Spaniards, and forsaking those who deceive you, obey Christ and His word which alone is firm and unchangeable for ever. Establish and found your faith on the true foundation of the Prophets and Apostles and sole Head of His church.”

“Abrid, pues, los ojos oh Españoles, i dejando á los que os engañan, obedezed á Cristo i á su palabra, la cual sola es firme i inmudable para siempre. Estribad i fundad vuestra fé sobre el verdadero fundamento de los Profetas i Apóstoles, i la sola Cabeza de su Iglesia.”
