History of the Early Printed Hebrew Book

Censorship

A critical issue impacting early Hebrew printing was that of censorship, both of the external ecclesiastical sort emanating from Rome, and internal Jewish control stating that no Hebrew book be printed without the authorization of recognized rabbis and lay leaders of the nearest large community.  Included among the studies in this section of the research guide are academic works focusing on the ultimate form of censorship, the auto de fé, or burning of books.
