A lot of boring descritption on an interesting subject. The author quotes from centuries-old manuscripts (good and interesting) and then he compares them. Then he analyzes them. Then he adds some more manuscripts, and does the same thing. Then he compares the previous and current ones ... When I actually find the logical facts, it is great. But there is a lot of reading required to find them. And this in a book that is only 181 pages long!
