Roman Catholic Church

"God forbid that any book should be banned. The practice is as indefensible as infanticide." - Rebecca West


How Does Censorship Apply?

Emperor Theodosius made Christianity established religion of empire

Government & church persecuted pagans and Christian heretics

Books or sermons different from orthodox faith were - not allowed and authors  punished

Books censored - Bible and Talmud
