Demonstration of Juxta using different editions of an Abelard work

After demonstrating in class the process of finding, loading and comparing two texts in Juxta, I did to create a quick video (6 seconds) using SnagIt to illustrate the different text changes between the Patrologia Latina edition and the Corpus Christianorum edition of Abelard’s work.  I used only a very small section of Expositio in Hexaemeron. For a student working on their dissertation by comparing two different copies of an author’s work, Juxta can be useful in visualizing the differences side by side and may offer insight into patterns hidden.
