“The church disapproved of the Bible in the vernacular; they wanted to keep the story for themselves and allow little bits out very parsimoniously. Eventually it was translated, of course, but the church didn't have very much to fear because most people didn't read, or don't read very deeply. They will read the bits they like and ignore the bits they don't understand or don't like.”
