The Great Commentary of Cornelius a Lapide

The Commentary on the Gospels in Four Volumes

         Father Cornelius a Lapide (Cornelis Cornelissen van den Steen), a Flemish Jesuit, was born in 1567, and died in Rome in 1637.  Soon after being ordained to the priesthood on December 24, 1595, he became a professor of Sacred Scripture at Louvain.  It was twenty years later that he was called to Rome, where he continued to teach Sacred Scripture.  As a zealous priest and devout religious he left to the world a complete commentary on all the books of the Bible with the exception of the Psalms and the book of Job, with the result that he has become one of the most renowned Catholic Scripture commentators of modern times, winning the admiration of certain Protestants even while they disagreed with his doctrine.

 

St. Robert Cardinal Bellarmine’s

A Commentary on the Book of Psalms

Translated by Fr John O'Sullivan 2008 382 pages (from 1866 edition)

The Psalms of the Old Testament constitute the most important Old Testament book, insofar as the Church has made them a part of her prayer, the Divine Office, recited or chanted by clergy and religious, as well as using them in the propers of the Mass, prayers at the foot of the altar, etc.  In the early centuries many of the laity knew the Psalms by heart, and during the Middle Ages laymen oftentimes continued to pray the Psalms in the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin, one of the most widely read books during that era.  Because the Psalms are filled with prophecies about the Messias, His Passion and Death, foreshadowed in the sufferings of King David, they nourish the spiritual lives of Catholics, who are called to share in the sufferings of Our Lord as members of His Mystical Body.
