This category is for sites that deal with the study of the text of the Bible--whether in the original manuscripts, or the copies, or early translations. It is not for sites discussing the _meaning_ of the text: only for determining _what_ the text was. Obviously, an accurate and reliable text is of great interest to all who wish to translate it, or study its meaning: hence the primary place of this field in Biblical studies. This is sometimes called "Textual Criticism" or "Lower Criticism."
