6-volume Expositions of the Psalms SET - Study Edition

    About the set

    As the psalms are a microcosm of the Old Testament, so the Expositions of the Psalms can be seen as a microcosm of Augustinian thought. In the Book of Psalms are to be found the history of the people of Israel, the theology and spirituality of the Old Covenant, and a treasury of human experience expressed in prayer and poetry. So too does the work of expounding the psalms recapitulate and focus the experiences of Augustine's personal life, his theological reflections and his pastoral concerns as Bishop of Hippo.

    Newly translated by Maria Boulding, O.S.B., whose masterful translation of Augustine's Confessions in the same series has been praised as being of a different level of excellence from practically anything else in the market.

    Maria Boulding’s new translation of Saint Augustine’s magnificent Expositions of the Psalms is cause for celebration. Not only are the wraps taken off this least known of Augustine’s major works, we are accompanied by a penetrating scholarly text. Every student of early Christian thought and spirituality will be grateful to have at last such open access to this crucial work.

    Dr. Michael Cameron
    Scholar of Early Christianity

    Sister Maria Boulding's fine translation fills a long existing vacuum among the translated works of Augustine available to contemporary readers. Her clear and attractive translation presents Augustine's expression of his own spirituality, which necessarily entails his most valuable theological insights.
