The first book to explore the use, interpretation, development, translation and influence of the Psalms in the Atlantic world during 1400-1800, this volume showcases essays by scholars from literature, history, music and religious studies. The collection reaches beyond national and confessional boundaries to look at the ways in which Psalms touched nearly every person living in early modern Europe and any place in the world that Europeans took their cultural practices.
