relax and let the syntax bring you home

today's lesson is on Christian latin and comes from albert blaise's 'A Handbook of Christian Latin: Style, Morphology, and Syntax'.

Quo is sometimes used in place of ut even when the clause does not contain a comparative, which is rare in Classical Latin:
rogabam te...quo sanares dolorem meum, Aug.Conf.2.12; 6.13; 8.13; Tert.Apol.27; 47.
