This monograph examines the Royal Psalms against the background of recent advances in research into the Psalms and the Psalter, which addresses not only the detailed examination of the individual texts but also the connections between the individual psalms. A detailed textual analysis refutes the thesis that the Royal Psalms were composed exclusively before the time of exile, showing a literary development beyond the time of exile and demonstrating that the Royal Psalms display a coherent theology.
