Chapter Summary

This chapter explores an exceptional and intriguing edition: the Psalms of David, published by Gillis van den Rade in 1580. The chapter examines the circumstances that resulted in its publication, in addition to the significance of such a work, so as to shed new light (and new shadows!) on the character of Bonaventura Vulcanius. Vulcanius was neither the direct heir to Cassander or Ronsard, despite his having taken from both: he retained both the religious convictions of his master Cassander and the poetic ambitions of Ronsard. The nature of Bonaventura Vulcanius personality should indeed be examined, all the more so given that the printer of the Psalms of David, Gillis van den Rade, also known as vande Keere, and before as Dutour, presents us with such an interesting example of mystification; it is only today that we can begin to solve this mystery.

Keywords: Bonaventura Vulcanius; Cassander; Psalms of David; Ronsard
