summary: At a time while the focal point of Psalms learn has more and more shifted from the form-critical matters of Hermann Gunkel and his fans, Defining the Sacred Songs argues for the continuing value of style as an interpretative classification within the post-critical period.

Sample text

80 In the Cyropaedia, we read: And do you remember, my son, how we thought one day together that it would be a worthy and noble work for a man to succeed in truly becoming a completely fulfilled human being, gaining all that he needed for himself and his family? (I, VI, 7). And in the Book of Tobit we read: On that day, Tobit remembered […] My son, honour your mother […] Remember, my son, that she faced many dangers for you while you were yet unborn. […] Every day, my son, remember the Lord; do not sin or transgress his commandments.

First of all, there is a contact, a confrontation between two true ways of being human, suffering and incomplete, which prescinds from programmatic intentions and doctrinal schemes. A human contiguity which causes the meeting and dialogue between common experiences, widespread worries and desires, obscure movements of the soul. The psychological analysis developed by the tragedians illuminates the agitations of the human heart, unveiling segments of family relationships which arouse the natural interest of the biblical authors just as of everybody else.

However, there remains, like a goad, the sense of a paternal relationship that has been inverted where it is the son who brings salvation to his father and not vice versa. What is a tormenting paradox in Euripides, is, for the hagiographer, a secret of light which is open to a future permeated with messianic expectation. The meaning of a text can surpass the original significance intended by the author and open itself as a prophecy for the reader. Perhaps Luke was thinking precisely of the Jewish novella of Tobit when he describes the scene of the old Simeon who, taking Mary’s child into his arms, declares that his eyes “have seen” the salvation and the light which is revealed to the Gentiles, seeking from God permission to depart (Lk 2:29-32).
