The TMH / DH Project - Request for Comments

In this ongoing project, I would like to request that readers make comments. Obviously, my analysis might be wrong on a particular topic, and if so, let me know.

But there is another good reason for comments. Neither I nor anyone also has access to all of the information bearing on a particular topic. For any particular topic, some reader might have his or her own interpretation or understanding of the issue that sheds some light on the question. Or might know of some other ancient document that is similar or different. Or might know of a commentary by a more obscure traditional commentator or an article in some academic journal. One of the huge benefits of this sort of blog is that it is a device for aggregating widely dispersed information. And that only works if people comment. So comment away.
