Nevertheless, it is undeniable that the invention of moveable type opened up
new possibilities for bringing texts to a wider public. The rapidity with which the
new invention spread after its development in Mainz and Strasbourg around
1450 attests to the speed with which contemporaries grasped the potential of the
new medium. The growth of printing fed off the huge demand for reliable editions
of standard school texts and for those texts newly popularized by the growth of
humanism.

Johann Gutenberg's invention of printing from movable type in the 1450s
changed everything about our world. Not only did he introduce the revolutionary
technology to make multiple copies of a book, but also, the new medium of
printing altered the content of the book product. In addition to religious works,
new secular subjects, such as histories, biographies, novels, poems, and
newspapers began to appear. More people learned to read as more printed
literature was produced.

1 The Medium, the Message, the Movement Print Culture and New Left Politics
KRISTIN MATHEWS MANY SCHOLARS of post- World War II American culture
have recognized speech's function in energizing the New Left, yet none have
examined reading's essential role in the evolution of New Left politics. This
oversight has produced a significant blind spot when it comes to understanding
the motivation, medium, and message for student radicals of the 1960s. Limiting
radical politics ...

the leveling testimony of the artist's gaze. The historical Breydenbach uses the
authority of this construction to resolve (or try to resolve) one of the challenges of
his project: how to develop the new medium of print while remaining obedient to
the established social structure of knowledge. Even if based at least in part on
sources handwritten or drawn by others, the “investigating and learning,” in other

In language-external developments, the era between 1500 and 1700 is
remarkable: the world view gradually changed from Ptolemaic to Copernican,
new continents were discovered, and people ceased to believe in received
knowledge. Scientific and medical writing became more diversified with the new
medium of the printing press, and the position of English, which had begun to
emerge as a language of science and medicine from the shadow of Latin during
the fourteenth and ...

visions reveal much about the values, desires, obsessions, and fantasies of the
respective era. In this chapter, I will compare the utopian visions of the print age
to those of the ...

In the latter field, the impact of printing may be postponed, but at least it is usually
included among the agents that promoted Luther's cause. The outpouring of
tracts and cartoons left too vivid and strong an impression for the new medium to
be entirely discounted when investigating the Protestant Revolt. The contrary
seems true in the case of the so-called scien- tific revolution. Exploitation of the
mass medium was more common among pseudoscientists and quacks than

For black-and-white it was faster and cheaper and separate stones could be
prepared for various colors, thereby eliminating the long and tedious labor of
coloring prints by hand. The new medium was also more sensitive and gave

qualities associated with the Romantic ballet. Lithographs remained the vogue

likenesses seemed ...

That event forms a convoluted but important link in our story, since Froben set
books for the great humanist scholar Erasmus, and no one understood the
potential power of the new medium of print better than Erasmus, who has been

his personal physician, and Paracelsus seemed to have found a place in Basel.
But then his bombast got the better of him. He lit his bonfire and threw Galen's
writings into it.
