AbstractThe textual criticism of the Bible has a venerable ancestor in the work of text editing carried out in the classical Polyglot bibles, among which the Complutense Polyglot was the first to come out, in the very beginning of the 16th century. This biblical masterpiece of the Spanish Renaissance, promoted and sponsored by Cardinal Cisneros, motivated an intense search for ancient and accurate Hebrew manuscripts of the Bible in order to edit the Hebrew column. This task was intensively carried out by Alfonso de Zamora, a converso whose knowledge of rabbinic tradition and Hebrew language made of him the most adequate scholar to achieve such a task at that time. Our paper will deal with the editing process of the Hebrew column in the Complutense Polyglot, the selection of manuscripts, the different tasks achieved by Alfonso de Zamora, and the materials related to this process that have endured until our days. We will also show pictures from the main biblical manuscripts used for the Hebrew column, and from other manuscripts used and copied by Alfonso de Zamora and linked to the Complutense Polyglot as well.
