Cornelius Cornelii a Lapide was an exegete and a Jesuit. He was born in 1567 in Belgium, where he attended courses of theology and philosophy; in 1592 was ordained priest at the Society of Jesus. After becoming professor of Holy Scripture at Leuven, he was called to Rome in the same capacity. He died at Rome in 1637. All his work is dedicated to commemorate and comment the books of Canon of Scripture (with the exception only of the Book of Job and the Psalms); many Protestant scholars have recognized a Lapide’s work as the most remarkable Scripture commentary.
