This course looks at the book which, according to St Thomas Aquinas, contains "all of theology." Students will gain an understanding of the meaning of each psalm and how the Book of Psalms reveals all of salvation history, reflecting both the events that preceded the writing of them and anticipating what followed in the rest of the Old and New Testaments. The course will also consider the place of psalms in prayer and especially in the context of the Divine Office as well as examine the visual imagery related to the text in the illuminated manuscripts.
