Description - Christianity and the Transformation of the Book by Anthony Grafton

When early Christians began to study the Bible, and to write their own history and that of the Jews whom they claimed to supersede, they used scholarly methods invented by the librarians and literary critics of Hellenistic Alexandria. But Origen and Eusebius, two scholars of late Roman Caesarea, produced new kinds of books, in which parallel columns made possible critical comparisons previously unenvisioned.
