Psalms in Translation Online Retreat with Mary Davenport


Explore the many ways the Psalms have been translated into English in this online offering from the Trinity Retreat Center. As "the hymn-book of the early Church," the psalter is a diverse collection of ancient songs that lies at the heart of both Christian and Jewish worship and spiritual life. As poetry, the psalms form a special challenge for translators, opening up new ways of thinking about what the essence of a sacred text is.
