Psalms in Interfaith Contexts
Thursday 17 November 18.00 – 19.00
Spurring Colonialism and Slavery: Protestants and Catholics United in their Use of Psalm 132
When we think about Catholic and Protestant interpretation of Scripture during the contentious period of the 16th-17thcenturies, we have come to expect difference and conflict. Yet the reception of Psalm 132 manifests a unified interpretive stance that promotes a unified aim: colonialism and enslavement. This presentation explores the ways in which European religious and political rivals took Psalm 132 as a goad and guide to conquer new lands and peoples.
