Chapter Summary

Having established the main aspects of Clément Marots view on the Psalms as reflected in his dedicatory epistles, this chapter now turns to Jean Calvin, who substantially enlarged his prefatory epistle to GE42 to accompany the Church edition of GE43, of which the hymnal part consisted exclusively of Marots Psalm paraphrases and some prayers. A comparison of their ideas on the same topics is helpful to sharpen the view on Marots theological position. If comparing Calvins and Marots appreciation of Davids Psalter, one notices a great number of similarities in their philosophy of poetry and music which first of all betray that they share a common cultural ground: classical Humanism. This comparison suggests that in 1543 Calvin and Marot were of one heart and one mind on many points, but if one penetrates below the surface differences become visible.
