Quid Gloriaris in Militia: Denis the Carthusian's on the Psalms - Vol. 3
564 pages | Arouca Press
QUI GLORIARIS IN MALITIA, the third of six anticipated volumes translating Denis the Carthusian’s (1402–1471) entire Commentary on the Psalms, contains Denis’s lively commentary of Psalms 51 through 75. Denis gives us new insight into the mind of Christ by Christocentrically interpreting the Psalms, and then combining them with the Christ who speaks through the prophets and in the Gospels. Though never neglecting the literal or historical underlay of the Psalms, Denis teases out for the reader the allegorical, tropological, and anagogical senses of the Psalms. The translated Commentary is supplemented by Denis’s own copious references to Scripture, but it also includes extensive footnotes that guide a reader who might be unfamiliar with historical, cosmological, biblical, theological, doctrinal, or moral issues raised by Denis in his Commentary. Not long ago, a common refrain among academics was, “He who read Denis, leaves nothing unread.” It might also be said that he who does not read Denis’s Commentary on the Psalms leaves the Psalms unread. This first-ever English translation of Denis’s Commentary on the Psalms makes the riches of his thought, long—too long—neglected, available to a wider audience.
