More about this item

Commentary on the Book of Psalms

To exhaust his intellectual and devotional energies in writing, Saint Robert Bellarmine prepared for posterity his very own commentary on each of the Psalms. "Most of the Psalms of David", he wrote, "read like a compendium of the whole of the Old Testament, a summation in 

a poetic

 capsule." Synopsis: After being called to the Cardinalate by Pope Clement VIII, Robert Bellarmine, one of only two Jesuit Doctors of the Church, found 

the need

 for a reprieve from what were often tiresome temporal duties. Therefore, to exhaust his intellectual and devotional energies in writing, he prepared for posterity his very own commentary on each of the Psalms. Most of the Psalms of David, he said, read like a compendium of the whole of the Old Testament, a summation in 

a poetic

 capsule. Others (Ps. 2, 21, 44 & 60) speak so clearly of Christ that they seem rather 

to belong to the Gospels. Yet, it is not the royal prophet, rather, it is the Holy Ghost, the true Author, Who desires to pluck this ten-stringed instrument of beauty called the Psaltery and bring our hearts to tears or jubilation as we sing praise to the 

Most High

. This is a huge book of nearly four hundred pages, a spiritual goldmine.
