I'm looking specifically for works that discuss the sense of a cessation of quarrels as found in oed.com's definition for the verb "atone":
1555 W. Waterman tr. J. Boemus Fardle of Facions i. vi. 92 Those battayles are attoned by the women..For when they be ones comen into the middle..the battaile sodenly ceaseth.
I would also be pleased to be pointed to a work that discusses or explores why the KJV bible translators stuck with atonement (Romans 5:11) when so many of their peers in the field of translation chose to use the traditionally accepted word "reconciliation" when rendering the Greek καταλλαγή into English.
Thank you in advance!
