I forgot to mention the result I want: a new xml document with the

I no longer know what I did wrong then. Although my style sheet works, I
am confident I do not understand the proper way to do this.

You will need to decide whether you make one of the (two) files your primary input document or whether you want to start with a named template. If you choose one file as the primary input document then all you need is

  <xsl:template match="/List">
      <xsl:copy-of select="Item, document('35Subjects.xml')/List/Item"/>

If you start with named template then that could look as follows:

<xsl:template name="main">
<xsl:copy-of select="document('22Authors.xml'')/List/Item, document('35Subjects.xml')/List/Item"/>
