Hence the importance of eyewitness accounts, ipsissima verba
('words actually spoken') and the use of direct and indirect speech in this examination of five landmark texts, three of which are chronicles by Crusade participants.
Asi, tras pasar revista a los relatos neotestamentarios de la ultima cena, donde realiza las oportunas calas exegeticas (<<por muchos>>, las ipsissima verba
Iesu, las dos cronologias, <<la sangre de la (nueva) alianza>> ...), viene un analisis del lavatorio de los pies y del discurso del pan de vida--al cual le otorga un significado netamente eucaristico--, en un sentido inverso al cronologico, sin que el autor de explicacion alguna al respecto.
Perhaps what Maimonides is doing is taking a cue from his previous article of faith requiring belief in the prophecy of Moses, and then extending it by saying that while Moses' prophecy was great, he nevertheless had no hand in composing the Torah text, which was the ipsissima verba
Sayings attributed to sages in the second century by documents of the third or fifth or seventh century are adduced in evidence, as though stenographers recorded Rabbinic discourse as it took place and handed on transcripts of ipsissima verba

Very few complete texts from the early Stoa have survived (as any examination of Von Arnim's Stoicorum Veterum Fragmenta soon makes quite apparent, we rely heavily on later authors for our reconstruction of the doctrines of this philosophical school), and so it is understandable that students of post-Aristotelian philosophy should attribute such value to the ipsissima verba

Pelikan notes that Justice Black dissented "with his customary adherence to the ipsissima verba

Now nearing the end of his epistle to a church he had yet to visit personally, the apostle in a more irenic mood remembers in today's reading the words of the Master that the early tradition of the church had passed down in which Jesus is found quoting Torah: "Love your neighbor as yourself." After puzzling through in the preceding chapters God's eternal election of Israel in the light of what he felt to be God's turn to the Gentiles in his own apostolic calling (see Stendahl's Final Account, 9-44), Paul here chooses as he rarely does in his letters to cite the ipsissima verba

(7) Jeremias drew expertly on the resources of modern philology in the effort to recover, at least conjecturally, the ipsissima verba
The incongruous survival of a few early seventeenth-century word-forms may, then, reflect a broader textual inertia, a deep-seated devotion to the author's ipsissima verba
