What was the apprehension of religious authorities and monarchs about printing?
Answer:

  • Not everyone welcomed the printed books and those who did also had fears about it.
  • It was feared that if there was no control over what was printed and read then rebellious irreligious thoughts might spread.
  • If that happened, the authority of valuable literature would be destroyed.
