Athanasius of Alexandria to his friend, Marcellinus, Ad Marcellinum. The letter is not long, and all who are drawn to Psalms and wish to profit from them are encouraged to read it in its entirety links in Bibliography. Some passages of special interest are supplied below. All the books of Scripture, both Old Testament and New, are inspired by God and useful for instruction 2 Tim , as it is written; but to those who really study it, the Psalter yields especial treasure.

And herein is yet another strange thing about the Psalms. Just as in a mirror, the movements of our own souls are reflected in them and the words are indeed our very own, given us to serve both as a reminder of our changes of condition and as a pattern and model for the amendment of our lives. The whole divine Scripture is the teacher of virtue and true faith, but the Psalter gives a picture [more particularly] of the spiritual life.

When, therefore, the Psalms are chanted, it is not from any mere desire for sweet music but as the outward expression of the inward harmony obtaining in the soul, because such harmonious recitation is in itself the index of a peaceful and well-ordered heart. For a soul rightly ordered by chanting the sacred words forgets its own afflictions and contemplates with joy the things of Christ alone. For I think that in the words of this book all human life is covered, with all its states and thoughts, and that nothing further can be found in Man.

The Life of Antony and the Letter to Marcellinus

Athanasius c. An advisor to Bishop Alexander, Athanasius attended the synod at Nicaea in , and three years later succeeded Alexander in the episcopal office. From that position he waged, for nearly a half-century, a vigorous and ultimately effective battle against his opponents within the Church—most notably Arius and his followers. The vehemence with which Athanasius advanced his cause and resisted compromise resulted in five periods of exile from Alexandria. He was absent from the city for more than a third of his term of office.
