    This is VERY funny. In all those old pictures from the Middle Ages, the monks at their desks, plume in hand, with their scrolls spread before them, look terribly serious and focussed. They couldn’t, we assume, have had lapses of attention, or slips of the pen, that resulted in any kind of error. I wonder whether scholars have found errors and, if so, any consistency in the type of error that would allow them to say, “Aha, this manuscript must have been transcribed by Xxxxius, because this error is characteristic of his work.”
