The article deals with Chrysostom and the humanists Valla, Bude and Erasmus who influenced Calvin's hermeneutics. Calvin appreciated Chrysostom's rejection of the allegorical interpretation and his emphasis
on the 'simple sense of the text'. The article aims at showing how Chrysostom
and the humanists offecred Calvin's hermeneutics of interpretingthe 'intention of the author of Scripture' (mens scriptoris) and seeing the 'true meaning' of the text as 'simply and briefly' (brevitas et facilitas) as possible.
