The present paper conceptualises two distinct ways in which scholars may try to make sense of a document or set of documents, and considers why so few attempts are made to marry these two approaches. By subjecting the collected contents of an early 20th-century documentary scroll from Nasaf first to an 'evocative' reading and then to an 'antiphonal' one, I consider what we may glean from considering each reading in the light of the other.
