 If you're the sort of person who took a few detours into the history of
5 5
 religion in college, you might be familiar with some of the ways people used to
6 6
 do textual comparison.  When pen, paper, and typesetting were what scholars had
7
-to work with, they did some surprisingly sophisticated things in order to
8
-expose the relationships between multiple pieces of text.

 Here's a book I got in college:  _Gospel Parallels: A Comparison of the
13
-Synoptic Gospels_, by Burton H. Throckmorton, Jr.  It breaks up three books
14
-from the Bible by the stories and themes that they contain, and shows the
15
-overlapping sections of each book that contain parallel texts.  You can work
16
-your way through and see what parts only show up in one book, or in two but not
17
-the other, or in all three.  These kinds of tools support all sorts of
18
-theoretical stuff about which books copied each other and how, and what other
19
-sources they might have copied that we've since lost.

+The way I understand it, a book like this one only scratches the surface of the

 This is some _incredibly_ dry material, even if you kind of dig thinking about
22
-questions like how and when an important religious book was written and
23
-compiled.  It takes a special temperament to actually sit poring over
24
-fragmentary texts in ancient languages and do these painstaking comparisons.
25
-Even if you're a writer or editor and work with a lot of revisions of a text,
