| Book Description: |
The various manifestations of authority have enforced, or acted to prevent, the distribution of books, pamphlets and other print matter in Europe during the late medieval and Renaissance period. This volume analyzes how readers, writers and printers have sometimes rebelled against the constraints and restrictions of authority; and how the written or printed word itself has been perceived to have a kind of authority, with ramifications in social, political or religious spheres.
