Printed Thesis Information:


The study of editorial work upon the Psalter has been one of the growth areas in psalms study in the past twenty years. This study focuses upon a particular group of psalms, Book IV of the Psalter, and examines the theories of editorial work as they apply to this collection of psalms. My thesis is that there is evidence of purposeful editing of the Psalter, and Book IV in particular. As a result of the creation of this collection of psalms we can discover a wider range of relationships between the psalms in Book IV. In a brief concluding chapter this study suggests that the existence of editorial work upon the Psalter has implications (1) for the use of form critical methods of psalms study and (2) for the possibility of articulating an inclusive and coherent Biblical Theology.
