The erudite professor of philology and expert in Norse languages wrote books
about dragons and trolls and elves and wizards. The devout Roman Catholic
purged any mention of Christianity from the 500,000 pages of his epic, "The
Lord of the Rings," series.

500,000 pages?? Even by today's publishing standards that would equate to
about 600 volumes (assuming an average of 830 pages per volume and 552 words
per page!!).

Shum mishtake, shurely?
