Chapter Summary

Since not only the text tradition of Marots Psalm paraphrases is extremely complicated, but also the number of legends surrounding its provenance far exceeds the number of established facts. One was compelled to perform a preliminary critical-bibliographical research concerning Clément Marots Psalm paraphrases in order to recover the material (texts and facts): a kind of historical-bibliographical clean sweep. The author uses the term Psalm paraphrases to refer to Marots verse translations of the biblical Psalms, because it seems to be the most neutral and intrinsically correct term available. To refer to an edition author uses a coded system not unlike the system of sigla developed by Pierre Pidoux in his work of reference on the subject, Le psautier huguenot, which consists of a combination of place (capitalised) and year of publicatione.g., PA41 refers to Marots Trente Pseaulmes, printed by E. Roffet in Paris in 1541.

Keywords: Clément Marot; historical survey; Psalm paraphrases; Trente Pseaulmes
