[Bible - Psalms] Santis Pagnini, trans.
This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
 ff., 129:78 mm., light age staining, nice margins. A very good copy bound in contemporary full leather boards, rubbed.
Psalms with Latin translation by Santis Pagnini. The recital of the whole Book of Psalms is widespread, whether as an act of piety by saintly individuals, or by groups of unlearned people. For this purpose "societies of reciters of psalms" (hevrot tehillim) were and continue to be formed, and in recent times a special society has been formed in Jerusalem whereby two separate groups recite the whole Book of Psalms daily at the Western Wall. The psalms are included in their entirety in all large prayer books.
