Christianity, Book-Burning and Censorship in Late Antiquity

Full Product Description

The role of Christian institutions, writers and saints in the active suppression and destruction of books in Late Antiquity has received surprisingly little consideration. The author argues that texts and ideas from materialistic philosophical traditions were vulnerable to destruction, censorship or suppression through prohibition of the copying of manuscripts. This includes texts which were to become the basis for modern philosophy and science.

Christianity, Book-Burning and Censorship in Late Antiquity by Dirk Rohmann was published by De Gruyter in July 2016. The ISBN for Christianity, Book-Burning and Censorship in Late Antiquity is 9783110484458.
