“there is a Zadokite Document (singular), known from two twelfth-
century copies and from fragments found at one of the Quram caves . . 
. Its contents are entirely different from those ascribed by Dick to 
his own fictional documents” (Galbreath, Robert (1983) 'Redemption 
and Doubt in Philip K. Dick. Valis Trilogy', {iExtrapolation} 24: 105-
115 at p. 114)
