A hotomorphic line bundle over an abelian variety whose Chern class is positive definite admits a complex Laplace-Beltrami operator canonical ly determined by the Chern class. In this paper, we study some implications of the Selberg trace formula applied to this elliptic differential operator acting on the Hilbert space of sections of the bundle.
