Burying the Lede

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 10:30 PM

"Those seeking an understanding of the historical elements
of Jesus’ saga might find it profitable to engage the vast work
of David Friedrich Strauss, the German intellectual, whose
monumental 'The Life of Jesus, Critically Examined' was
translated into English in the 19th century by George Eliot.
(At times, the translation reads like a scholarly 'Middlemarch,'
much to its credit.)"

— Jon Meacham in the Easter Sunday print edition of
     The New York Times.  The above passage is
     paragraph 10 of Meacham's article.
