“What, then, came of those poor souls who lived before the Bible was printed, before it was even written in its present form? How were nations made familiar with the Christian religion and converted to Christianity before the fifteenth century?” (Page 3)

“A last point must always be kept clearly in mind, for it concerns one of the greatest delusions entertained by Protestants and makes their fierce attacks on Rome appear so silly and irrational—the point, namely, that the Bible, as we have it now, was not printed in any language at all till about 1,500 years after the birth of Christ, for the simple reason that there was no such thing as printing known before that date.” (Pages 2–3)

“Even Protestant authors of the highest standing are compelled to admit that the living teaching of the Church was necessarily the means chosen by Jesus Christ for the spread of his gospel and that the committing of it to writing was a later and secondary development.” (Page 10)

“One more authority on the Protestant side, and I am done: It is Mr. Karl Pearson (Academy, August 1885), who says, ‘The Catholic Church has quite enough to answer for, but in the fifteenth century it certainly did not hold back the Bible from the folk, and it gave them in the vernacular a long series of devotional works which for language and religious sentiment have never been surpassed. Indeed, we are inclined to think it made a mistake in allowing the masses such ready access to the Bible. It ought to have recognized the Bible once for all as a work absolutely unintelligible without a long course of historical study and, so far as it was supposed to be inspired, very dangerous in the hands of the ignorant.’” (Page 72)
