Christian Hadithic study? Howard C. Berkowitz 22:13, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

I haven't really seen what Christians have had to say about the Hadith. The Other Wiki doesn't seem to be very informative. Got any links I can click on? –Tom Morris 22:18, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
That was a semi-facetious remark, but I can dig up material on Islamic hadithic concepts. Unfortunately, what I have is mostly hard copy. The serious analogy, however, is that the four Hadithic schools, using slightly different methods, had some quite thoughtful approaches to the question: "is it plausible that Muhammed said XXX on date YYY at place ZZZ?" You might find intelligence collection management#Ratings by the Collection Department interesting as a comparable methodology. Howard C. Berkowitz 22:56, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
