Only St.Paul & Pentateuch were published while he was still in Belgium, he was then called to Rome where he was Professor of Hebrew and Scripture and where he spent the last 20 years teaching and editing his commentaries until his death in 1637. This, as several of his other works were only published after his death and then were in almost continual print as "They explain not only the literal, but also the allegorical, tropological, and anagogical sense of the sacred text, and furnish a large number of quotations from the Fathers and the later interpreters of Holy Writ" [Catholic Encyc.]
