Professional Development Program Audience
This NEH Seminar for Higher Education Faculty, on “Printing and the Book During the Reformation: 1450-1650," will focus on the production, dissemination, and reading of British and Western European books during the two centuries that followed the invention of printing with movable type on hand-operated presses circa 1450. We shall devote particular attention to the impact of the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Reformation (or Counter-Reformation) on the material nature of books and the book trade, as well as upon their reading and use, during a turbulent era of religious, intellectual, literary, and cultural change.
