Containing the vocabulary of the Psalms, hymns, canticles, and miscellaneous prayers of the Breviary Psalter edited and introduction by Fr. Matthew Britt, OSB.
This classical reference work for the Latin Vulgate Psalms is invaluable, whether you pray the Latin Psalter in the context of the Divine Office, or you just like to pray the Psalms apart from the breviary.
Covering such preliminary topics as “English Catholic Version of the Psalter”, “Latin Versions of the Psalter”, “The Latinity of the Vulgate Psalter”, and “How the Psalms are Numbered”, true to form, the Dictionary of the Psalter goes on to define each Latin word used in the Vulgate Psalter (as used in the traditional Roman Breviary), its English parallel and derivative; it cites where the word was used and its context.
Get more out the Psalms by understanding what they mean!
Republished as close as possible to the original 1928 edition, this elegant book is made not only to look great, but durable to last for years!
