"Of course," mentions Professor Entz, "this was a time of great pestilence, including cholera and the Black Plague!" "Yes! Professor Entz bellows.

Widening Wrld of Books and Readers

Description: Printing began a technological revolution that facilitated the communication of ideas and the preservation of knowledge. It would be hard to imagine society, as we know it today, without unlimited access to ideas. Without the communication and preservation of ideas made possible by the invention of printing and the technological advances that have improved the process over the past five centuries, public knowledge would largely depend on what institutions dictated scribes to record. Students explain the impact of printing on the communication of ideas, give examples of religious themes in literature, explain how printing broadened readership and promoted literacy, and explain how the spread of ideas advanced Renaissance humanism, the Reformation, and the Scientific Revolution. Standards 7.6.8, 7.8.1, 7.8.4, 7.8.5, 7.9.2, and 7.10.2
