Giovanni Miegge

Giovanni Miegge (1900–1961) was an Italian Protestant theologian and author on religious issues.[1] He was professor of theology at the Waldensian school of theology (Facoltà valdese di teologia) in Rome, Italy.

Miegge supported neo-orthodoxy, and promoted the ideas of Karl Barth in Italy, and translated Barth's work on the Epistle to the Romans. Miegge wrote many books, including a biography of Martin Luther published in 1946.

He also wrote the book The Virgin Mary which analyzed Marian teachings from Catholic and Protestant perspectives.[1]
