Classic: Magic 2e p 95 effectively gave Clerics what in 4e amounts to a limited form of Magery 0 and effectively locked them out of spells that required Magery 1 or higher to learn.
As Magery 0 didn't exist then, all Mages had at least Magery 1, and thus 'as a mage' meant at least all spells in their available colleges requiring Magery 1 were available to them.
