Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Surveys the influence of the Psalms in the Middle Ages, giving a unique window into the intellectual, spiritual, and emotional culture of the period.

The Psalms were an important part of the education, daily life, and spiritual development of medieval clerics and monks, and they had a significant impact on lay culture as well. The Place of the Psalms in the Intellectual Culture of the Middle Ages surveys their influence, giving a unique window into the intellectual, spiritual, and emotional culture of the period.

"One of the most attractive things about this book is the variety it contains, while still having a thematic focus. Each contributor has taken a particular approach and, in general, a specific cultural setting for the use/interpretation of the Psalms. Taken as a whole, the book gives a broad and useful assessment of the Psalms in medieval culture." -- Grover A. Zinn, Oberlin College

"This book fills a void. Although more and more books have been published that have delved into various aspects of the Bible in the Middle Ages, including two books on the Song of Songs and many on specific prophets and other biblical characters, no general book on the Psalms in the Middle Ages has been printed--even though the Psalms were more basic to the experience that most medieval people had of the Bible than any other book of scripture. The idea of putting together such a volume deserves applause." -- Jan M. Ziolkowski, Harvard University

Contributors include George Brown, Marcia L. Colish, Mary Kay Duggan, Joseph Dyer, Theresa Gross-Diaz, Michael P. Kuczynski, Marie Anne Mayeski, James W. McKinnon, Joseph Falaky Nagy, Nancy van Deusen.
