Overview

In Commentary on the Psalms from Primitive and Mediæval Writers, editors J. M. Neale and R. F. Littledale have condensed the writings of the Church Fathers and other important writers from the Middle Ages into a verse-by-verse commentary of all 150 Psalms. This unique four-volume collection weaves together commentary on the Psalms from the Venerable Bede, Dionysius the Carthusian, Cyril of Alexandria, Gregory the Great, Thomas Aquinas, Saint Augustine, and many more. Additionally, Neale and Littledale reference various office-books and hymns from the Roman, Mozarabic, Ambrosian, Gallican, Greek, Coptic, Armenian, and Syriac Rites.

This is the ultimate collection for studying the Psalms in the same spirit that the mediæval commentators approached them. With the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in the Commentary on the Psalms from Primitive and Mediæval Writers (4 vols.) are tagged and appear on mouse-over. What’s more, Scripture references are linked to the wealth of language resources in your Logos library. This makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “strength” or “Psalms 19:14.”

  • Verse-by-verse commentary on all 150 Psalms
  • Each Psalm includes an introduction and various thoughts from the writings of the Church Fathers
  • Completely searchable, linked to your preferred Bible translation and the other books in your library
This commentary on the Psalms is an important contribution to theological literature, in two points of view, as a collection of antique facts and opinions in relation to this portion of Holy Scripture, and as an example of mystical exegesis.

Journal of Sacred Literature and Biblical Record

It will be found by those who have any taste at all for such studies a rich and valuable mine to which they may again and again recur without running the slightest risk of digging out the contents too hastily.

Guardian

A work of singular interest to the devotional reader, and one which will open a new field of thought to theological students.

Christian Remembrancer

This commentary is both theologically and devotionally an immense advance upon any commentary upon any portion of Holy Scripture which has yet to be written.

Church Review

To clergymen it will prove invaluable for homiletical purposes, as an abundance of new trains of thought will be suggested, which will give their sermons that freshness which is as unusual as it is desirable in pulpit utterances. And no less a boon will it be to those of the laity who enjoy a book, which without requiring any great amount of continuous reading, will give food for meditation, and enable them to enter with more interest into that book of Holy Scripture which they are probably more familiar with than with any other.
