Commentaries on Prophet Jeremiah and The Lamentations by Calvin (Vol. IV) 1854
Commentaries on the Book of the Prophet Jeremiah and The Lamentations. (Vol. IV.), Jean (eng. John) Calvin, Printed for the Calvin Translation Society, Edinburgh, 1854.
John Calvin produced commentaries on most of the books of the Bible. By 1555, he had completed his work on the New Testament, finishing with the Acts and the Gospels (he omitted only the brief second and third Epistles of John and the Book of Revelation). For the Old Testament, he wrote commentaries on Isaiah, the books of the Pentateuch, the Psalms, and Joshua. The material for the commentaries often originated from lectures to students and ministers that he reworked for publication. From 1557 onwards, he could not find the time to continue this method, and he gave permission for his lectures to be published from stenographers' notes.
His magnum opus, the Institutes of the Christian Religion. He intended that the book be used as a summary of his views on Christian theology and that it be read in conjunction with his commentaries.
