Notes
  • "The publication of The Editing of the Hebrew Psalter in 1985 inaugurated a new era in the study of the book of Psalms. A biblical book, the study of which had been driven by form and cult-functional criticism for many years, was about to be subject to a very different kind of scrutiny--an examination of its shape and shaping. Within a few years, a Book of Psalms Consultation was formed in the Society of Biblical Literature, and Ph.D. students in many institutions were writing dissertations on both the macro- and micro-structuring of the Psalter. In 2010, the twenty-fifth anniversary of the publication of The Editing of the Hebrew Psalter, the Book of Psalms Section determined that it would be appropriate to dedicate two of its 2011 Society of Biblical Literature sessions to the topic of the shape and shaping of the Psalter. Many of the essays in this volume were presentations in those sessions"--Preface, page ix.
