When i think of how the Salvation journey works, i find myself asking if the same Salvation was available to the early people. Before the written Word.

I understand that the beginning of printing the Word of God for the masses started around the 1500's.

My question is, Could some one before the 1500's be drawn by the Father, and commit their lives to Christ without knowing the name of Jesus Christ ? Meaning can someone in those days have committed their lives to God, not knowing Gods name and be on the narrow path?
