When I was a student of mathematics I was told that someone had formalized an entire book on analysis just to put to rest the question whether mathematics could be completely formalized, so that mathematicians could proceed with business as usual. I subsequently learned that the book was Landau’s “Grundlagen” [6], the someone was L. S. van Benthem Jutting [11], the tool of choice was Automath [12], and that popular accounts of history are rarely correct.
