This was one of the Bibles that the ‘Poor of Lyon’ (another name for the Waldensians) translated from Latin into French. It dates to 1580.

    Are you sure it was translated from Latin? The ‘Poor of Lyon’ had already translated the Bible from Greek and Hebrew in 1535, through the expertise of Pierre Robert Olivétan, supposedly the cousin of Jean Calvin.
