Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses two Psalms that are christologically charged, but in a different way: Psalms 8 and 110. The analysis of Psalm 8 gives the opportunity to position Clément Marot in the field of the theological tension between Lefèvre dEtaples and Erasmus, since around the translation and interpretation of Ps. 8,6 a controversy had risen between these two biblical scholars. Psalm 110 gives the opportunity to see how far Marot was willing to go in historicising and humanising Psalms, which traditionally were considered direct prophecies of Christ. This Psalm offers additional opportunities since it is also a very difficult Psalm to translate on the linguistic level.

Keywords: christological interpretation; Clément Marot; Erasmus; Lefèvre dEtaples; Psalm 110; Psalm 8
