THE 513 The Psalms

Perhaps the most influential of all writings from the Hebrew Bible for Christian spirituality, the Psalms offer a special glimpse into the religious life of ancient Israel. By placing these texts within their larger historical background, the course will study psalms of various types (laments, hymns, royal, wisdom psalms) with a view to their literary and religious character and their theological value for communities of faith today. The course will also consider the question of the Psalter’s theology as a whole.
