The translation of the Old Testament of Casiodoro de Reina, revised by Cipriano de Varela, raised enormous controversy and caused both to be persecuted for life by the Inquisition. A member of a congregation of the Order of St. Jerome in the vicinity of Seville, Cassiodorus ended up fleeing Spain and converted to Protestantism, in a journey that took him through Switzerland, Germany and England.
In London Cassiodorus began work on this translation of the Bible.
From England, Cassiodorus fled with his wife to Holland, after receiving an accusation of sodomy.
Thus Cassiodorus becomes the great heterodox of his time. And Marcelino Menéndez y Pelayo dedicates to him, among others, this allusion in his History of the Spanish heterodox:

“Cassiodorus, a Moorish from Granada who has been a friar and preached to the few heretics who reside in London.”

It is worth summarizing his story by saying that Cassiodorus’ life was a perpetual flight always condemned for his beliefs.
However, he did not cease in his efforts to translate the Bible and in 1569 he published his translation of the Old Testament. Today it is known as the Bear Bible because it has an engraving showing a bear on the cover. It was, in fact, the logo of the publisher that took care of the edition and printing of the volume.
In 1602, a new edition of the Bible was published, including the Old Testament of Casiodoro de Reina and Cipriano de Varela. It is the corrected version of the translation of Reina made by Cyprian, which we know today and publish here. It should be added that this version arranges the deuterocanonical books as appendices.
