Associate Professor of Religious Studies Carleen Mandolfo authored an article in The Oxford Handbook of the Psalms, published in March 2014 by Oxford University Press and edited by William P. Brown. Mandolfo’s article, titled “The Language of Lament,” examines the similarities and differences between lament psalms and the lament literature of Israel’s neighbors, compares lamentation in Greece and the ancient Near East, looks at three pervasive themes in the psalms of lament (justice, enemies, and death), and analyzes the theology of lament language.
