One example of parallelism is the following quote: "...serene, illustrious, excellent, and so forth, prince, our Lord the King, by reason of his having, on divers occasions, and by divers means and ways, assisted Lewis, the French King, in his wars against our said serene, illustrious, excellent, and so forth; that was to say, by coming and going between the dominions of our said serene, illustrious, excellent, and so forth..."

I think an example of doubling is when Jerry is delivering a message at the court. A trial for Treason is going on and Jerry notes the punishment will be "quartering" if the defendant is found guilty,
"If he's found Guilty, you mean to say?" Jerry added, by way of proviso.
"Oh! they'll find him guilty," said the other. "Don't you be afraid of that."
The man's reply is implies that all trials end in a guilty verdict. The trials are merely a prelude to the punishment. Both the trial and the punishment double each other.
