Connected with Martianay Maurists and criticisms?
Or just with Montfaucon as the early palaeogrphers.

Strange section from Nolan beginning p. 267, does defend Jerome authorship with twists and turns

http://books.google.com/books?id=i_EDAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA268
Nolan has Martianay against the verse? Not just the Vulgate Prologue authenticity.
However, Armfield and others say he is pro the verse.

Note that Nolan mentions the various "Rogue's Gallery" of interpolators if Prologue is not Jerome
https://books.google.com/books?id=i_EDAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA270

on the head of Victor, Vigilius, or any other prelate of the Latin Church who is singled out at the caprice or good pleasure of the suggestor.

More around p. 347 - Oxlee and Nolan had quite a sharp debate, much in that issue.

Interesting, in that Medieval edition above.
Mediaeval Studies 46 (1):463-475 (1984)

Ockham's Razor and Chatton’s Anti-Razor
Armand Maurer
https://philpapers.org/rec/MAUORA-2

===================================

Ockham's razor VS Chatton's anti-razor
Massimiliano Sassoli de Bianchi, PhD
https://www.iacworld.org/ockhams-razor-vs-chattons-anti-razor/

===================================

Occam's Razor
https://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Ockham's_razor
https://academickids.com/encyclopedia/index.php/Ockham's_razor
https://www.connexions.org/CxLibrary/Docs/CxP-Occams_Razor.htm

Karl Menger found mathematicians to be too parsimonious with regard to variables so he formulated his Law Against Miserliness which took one of two forms: "Entities must not be reduced to the point of inadequacy" and "It is vain to do with fewer what requires more". See "Ockham's Razor and Chatton's Anti-Razor" (1984) by Armand Maurer. A less serious, but (some might say) even more extremist anti-razor is 'Pataphysics, the "science of imaginary solutions" invented by Alfred Jarry (1873–1907). Perhaps the ultimate in anti-reductionism, 'Pataphysics seeks no less than to view each event in the universe as completely unique, subject to no laws but its own. Variations on this theme were subsequently explored by the Argentinean writer Jorge Luis Borges in his story/mock-essay Tln, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius. There is also Crabtree's Bludgeon, which takes a cynical view that 'No set of mutually inconsistent observations can exist for which some human intellect cannot conceive a coherent explanation, however complicated.'

While not technically contradicting the razor's notion that (other things being equal) "the simplest explanation is always the best", the reverse corollary – that the best explanation is not always the simplest – is well expressed by the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle character, Sherlock Holmes, especially in the following famous quote from The Sign of the Four: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
