About the Author:

Nancy van Deusen is Professor of Music and Director of the Claremont Consortium in Medieval and Early Modern Studies at The Claremont Graduate School. She has written several books, including The Harp and the Soul: Studies in Medieval Music.

Review:

"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
