Gerard H. Ettlinger, . is recently retired as Professor and John A. Flynn Chair of Theology at St. John's University. Theodoret was the leading Antiochian theologian of the mid 5th century. It is great to see a growing interest in Patristic texts like this one.
In fact of all the men of the early church I have read this one most reminds me of the current kind of exegesis that scholars use today where allegory is basically shunned. Theodore hardly ever pulls away much from the immediate text under his interpretive attention, Christ for example is very rarely mentioned, rather the prophets' words are mostly applied more to their time or at least pre-incarnation. The form in which he interprets is frequently to -following quotation of the text- to offer a paraphrase.

Another surviving work by Theodoret is his Refutation of the Anathemas, his rejection of the twelve anathemas pronounced on him by Cyril of Alexandria, which has been preserved in Cyril's defence. He detects Apollinarianism in Cyril's teaching, and declines a "contracting into one" of two natures of the only begotten, as much as a separation into two sons (Epist.

This volume completes the Commentary on all the Psalms written by Theodoret, bishop of Cyrus, in the decade before the Council of Chalcedon held in 451, "a triumph of Antiochene theology," in the words of J. N. D. Kelly. The work thus bears the marks of the theological currents of those years, especially as Theodoret was instrumental in convening that Council and was involved in the Christological and trinitarian debates of the period.
Theodoret's work of commentary offers readers a great spiritual classic that has contributed to Christian spiritual formation and received the attention of eminent commentators from Antioch and Alexandria in the East, and from the likes of Augustine of Hippo in the West. As this volume closes, Theodoret claims modestly to have offered his readers the best of his predecessors' work (including Alexandrian commentators) together with his own insights into "the Spirit's hidden mysteries." He writes as a teacher, not a preacher in his pulpit, with the purpose simply of dispelling ignorance, concerned that "those singing [the Psalter] daily and uttering the words by mouth do not enquire about the force of the ideas underlying the words."
his translation respects the conciseness which the bishop sets as one aim for himself, his other principle being to let the text speak for itself. Theodoret emerges in this work as a measured commentator and balanced exponent of his school's hermeneutical and theological principles.
Robert C. Hill teaches in the School of Studies in Religion at the University of Sydney. He is the author of numerous works and the translator of Saint John Chrysostom's Homilies on Genesis, volumes 74, 82, and 87 in The Fathers of the Church series.
"The translation itself is enhanced with many informative footnotes. Students of the biblical text and the tradition of interpretation alike will be grateful to Hill for making this commentary so accessible."―Journal for the Study of the Old Testament
