505 0  Patristic exegesis and the Psalter -- Delivery and 
       transmission of the Enarrationes -- The social, cultural, 
       and ecclesial context of the Enarrationes -- St. 
       Augustine's interpretation of the Psalms of ascent -- An 
       exploration of Enarrationes. 
520    McLarney considers the reception of the Psalter in the 
       early church and examines patristic hermeneutical 
       principles and Psalter commentaries in conjunction with 
       Augustine's distinctive approaches to scripture and the 
       Psalms. He studies the delivery and transmission of 
       Augustine's Expositions (Enarrationes), as well as the 
       mechanics of their composition, recording, and circulation,
       and the manuscript tradition. He looks at the possible 
       times and places of their delivery. McLarney then examines
       the social, cultural, and liturgical context of these 
       Expositions. Topics include African Christianity in 
       Augustine's time, the composition of a typical audience, 
       and the structure of the liturgy with specific reference 
       to the role of the Psalter. He sets in sharper relief 
       features such as the prominence of martyrs, the influence 
       of Neoplatonism, emphasis on spiritual combat, and the 
       importance of singing--all within the context of the 
       physical and liturgical context of delivery. Augustine 
       does not read out (exegete) the Psalter simply for his own
       benefit but pursues a hermeneutic of alignment, bringing 
       the Psalmist, the Psalm, and the lives of his North 
       African readers into a common context--and draws them into
       the dynamism of the Psalms. His readers continue an ascent
       of salvation in the communion of believers that began in 
       ancient times. (Publisher).
