The Legacy of Literal Prophecies of Christ

(p.13) 1 Medieval and Late‐Medieval Interpreters
The Judaizing Calvin

This chapter broadly traces the history of the interpretation of a set of eight messianic Psalms in the exegesis of the Glossa Ordinaria, Nicholas of Lyra, Denis the Carthusian, and Jacques Lefèvre d'Étaples. It argues that the late medieval interpreters primarily read the messianic Psalms as literal prophecies of Christ's incarnation, passion, crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. The author notes an increasing emphasis on the christological reading as the literal sense of the Psalm during late‐medieval times. Furthermore, the medieval and late‐medieval interpreters consistently saw in these Psalms teachings about the two natures of Christ and Trinity.
