sentences of logic to express statements about texts, and inference to
manipulate these sentences in order to analyse the texts.
Saint JeromeTo the right is a picture of Saint Jerome (Eusebius Hieronymus), c.347-420, painted by Albrecht Dürer 500 years ago. Jerome was a Father of the Church, whose great work was the translation of the Bible into Latin. At that time there were no computers. In the picture, sitting in his lab, Jerome seems to be accessing his intuitions, while pointing at a corpus.
