The "Epistola Magistri Benedicti Passavantii" (1553) or the "Passavant" is a satire in epistolary form, written by the reformer Theodore Beza and addressed to Pierre Lizet, ex-president of the Parliamant of Paris. He makes use of the satire in order to propagate the ideas of the Reformation: Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Sola Scriptura. This edition contains, apart from the text in macaronic Latin, a translation in French and the first detailed commentary from a historical, theological and literary perspective. The introduction deals inter alia with the macaronic Latin and the influence of Rabelais, Erasmus, von Hutten and Viret. Finally, the "Complainte de Messire Lizet sur le trespas de son feu nez" is added for the first time with a commentary.
