This is one of my favorite Libronix add-ons, and one of the most perpetually popular resources that they provide.  In particular, the background commentaries give access to quick information for those without an extended commentary collection.  As always, use carefully since correlation does not necessary tell us anything about causality and influence.

Make sure to let us know by leaving a comment on this post and sending an email to blog@logos.com with Blogroll in the subject line. (Make sure to do both in case one doesn’t make it.)
