Following the death of Desiderius Erasmus in 1536, God raised up a man to continue the work of translating the Greek New Testament. Robert Estienne was born into a noble French family in the city of Paris in the late 1400s or early 1500s. Printers by trade, the Estienne family was as well known for their scholarship as they were for their craft. By the time of his death in 1520, Henri, Robert’s father, had printed more than one hundred different books, many of which were renowned for their beautiful type styles.
The beautiful font of Stephanus' 1550 edition, commissioned by the King of France and designed by Claude Garamond, stands as a masterpiece of typographical skill. This particular translation, known as Editio regia, was the first Greek New Testament printed with a critical apparatus, providing variant readings and symbols to indicate the manuscript evidence.
