Actually, it is behind a "firewall" to keep the academician in business.

You could buy a per article view.  But in any case, is it really that
big an issue for the discussion?  You can accept that Capharnaum is the
more correct spelling.  Also, since the matter of interest is the k-p at the
beginning of the word, it matters less if it is Capernaum or Capharnaum
because both have an initial -a- vowel.
