Chapter Summary

Clément Marots Psalm paraphrases have always been preceded by a reference to the Hebrew language or the Hebrew Truth to characterise the translation. The first generation of humanists accessed the Hebrew Truth via old (and new) Latin translations iuxta Hebraeos. After a short historical survey, this chapter sketches the sixteenth-century landscape of the Hebraitas and try to find out what position Marots Psalm translations occupy there. The incentive for the Hebraicum was significant, as related by Jerome in the accompanying epistle to Sophronius. This anti-Jewish polemics is also an element of the term Hebraica Veritas. The next issue to be addressed is the assessment of the purport and tenor of Marots reference to la vérité Hébraique. The chapter deals with the historical-linguistic side of the term, only gradually uncovering the theological implications.
