    1. “Until the latter part of the 20th century, there was no support in American law for a constitutional right to obtain an abortion. Zero. None. No state constitutional provision had recognized such a right,” Alito adds. Alito’s draft argues that rights protected by the Constitution but not explicitly mentioned in it – so-called unenumerated rights – must be strongly rooted in U.S. history and tradition. That form of analysis seems at odds with several of the court’s recent decisions, including many of its rulings backing gay rights.

      Could be interesting to look at this from the dual perspective of eisegesis vs. exegesis.

    1. Theories of note-taking can tell us about how memory and writingwere understood, and practices of note-taking, about the tools that proved mostuseful in managing textual information in early modern Europe.

      Historical note taking practices can tell us many things aside from just the ways in which textual information was managed. They can also tell us about how people lived, how they thought, how they used memory and writing and how these things were understood culturally.

      We do however need to be careful in how we interpret these documents historically. We need to attempt to view them exegetically and not eisegetically. We also need to be careful to look at them from a "large world" perspective and not presume that small things had large and heavy influence on things to come in the future.

    1. Such contradictions can be corrected by encouraging women, too, to write interprelations of the Bible.

      This is one of those moments that might be what the authors of this intro mean when they say that Willard seems to be completely unaware of Grimke and Fell:

      Gimke, page 1050:

      The New Testament has been referred to, and I am willing lo abide by its decisions, but must enter my protest against the false translation of some passages by the MEN who did that work, and against the perverted interpretation by the MEN who undertook to write commentaries thereon. I am inclined to think, when we are admitted to the honor of studying Greek and Hebrew, we shall produce some various readings of the Bible a little different from those we now have.

    1. has used annotations (and the related techniques of footnotes and citations) extensively for centuries

      In some non-trivial ways, this might be key to how people have defined “scholars”, including religious ones.
