I think that you and Samuel would like the Catholicism of the early
Church. I'm currently reading Augustine's Confessions, and it is packed
full of Biblical References, and I wouldn't be surprised if the editor
missed a few do to Augustines use of thought and language. I also
learned something interesting, folios of New Testament books were widely
available to people, Augustine had one as a "table book".
