preserved the text and that conviction has led them to try proving the
text" position with their stemma, etc. Likewise, Pickering's belief of
inerrancy leads him to pick and chose a text that supports his beliefs.
Maurice Robinson stands out from the crowd, in that his devotion to the
Byzantine text family is based squarely on his interpretation of textual
transmission. He and I don't see eye to eye on textual transmission, but I
appreciate his approach much more than that of H/F.
