In particlular "Finding primes & proving primality" ->
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make
empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have
made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in
the bonds of Hell. -- Common mistranslation of St. Augustine (354-430)
