JA Bengel: Newest Member of the PP Logocentric Hegemonic Rogues Gallery

Te totum applica ad textum: rem totam applica ad te.

--- Johann Albrecht Bengel [Preface to his manual edition of the Greek New Testament (1734)]

Translation: Apply yourself entirely to the text: [then] apply the entire subject matter to yourself

[Taken from a footnote 25 at John Warwick Montgomery's site.]
