16th century censorship

Long before the internet, writers with opinions contrary to those of the powers-that-be were victims of censorship. One such writer was the Dutch humanist Erasmus of Rotterdam whose writings were considered in conflict with the Catholic Church.

Now, 400-years later, two books held by the University of Toronto show examples of the censorship styles, including gluing pages together and inking out words. Experts hope to learn what lies beneath the glued pages.
