Psalms were orally preserved poems used in the ceremonies of individual and communal worship, expressing mainly lament or praise, before they were written down becoming this collection of literature that is known to us. Their original character is preserved until now to the degree that they are used in liturgical life. Their inscriptions were added later, by the Hellenistic times, in the course of the formation of their corpus.
The book is illuminated and features a relatively large typeface, making its reading a pleasure.
The text is the one prepared by Alfred Rahlfs, modified by the Church of Greece to take advantage of forms being in use in the Greek liturgical tradition, a tradition of the highest authority, coming through Byzantium and being alive even now. You may like to check this edition even if you already have the Septuagint in some other form.
