Minocchi, Salvatore
(100 words)

[German Version]

(Aug 26, 1869, Ortignano Raggiolo – Aug 13, 1943, Travale), exegete. From 1901, he taught Hebrew in Florence. In 1907, he received a suspensio a divinis and gave up his academic career. In 1911, he married. In the judgment of Ernesto Buonaiuti, Minocchi was the “pioneer” of Italian modernism. His magazine Studi religiosi (1901–1908) was the organ of historical-critical exegesis. In 1908, he broke with the Roman Church, whose dogma he believed to be at odds with science.
