Printed books were once considered inferior because they were seen as mass-produced, lacking the personal touch and craftsmanship of hand-copied manuscripts. Additionally, some feared that the mass dissemination of printed material would lead to a loss of control over information and ideas.

Explain why the development of printing was described as a revolution?

The printing press not only allowed books and pamphlets to be printed faster, but also helped books be distributed to a wider variety of people. (partially because they were cheaper to make) Once it was easier to get books, the literacy rate increased greatly. When more people could read, pamphlets and books that had new discoveries and ideas that were once read only by nobles were then circulated through the middle and lower classes. Thus, the ideas of the enlightenment not only spread through the countries of Europe, but through the social rankings as well.
