However, it became significantly more important in the early modern period with the invention of printing, which enabled the easy reproduction of texts in large quantities. Initially, it was the church which imposed censorship, though institutions of the state soon became involved as well.
In the 17th century, the campaign against censorship and for freedom of the press began in England, where substantial success was achieved as early as In France and Germany, on the other hand, freedom of the press was not achieved until considerably later.
Temporary progress was repeatedly followed by backlashes.
In the 20th century, the newly emerging media film, radio, and television also became subject to censorship and control measures, and modern totalitarian regimes engaged in the massive suppression of freedom of expression in these media.
In European history, censorship was not only used as a means of political, intellectual and cultural control within the state, but was also used to prevent the cross-border transfer of information and ideas deemed unwelcome.
Freedom of the press, on the other hand, opened the gates for transfer of this kind. However, a paradox existed in this regard: For a long time, state authorities allowed political newspapers to report on events abroad indeed these reports formed a large part of the content precisely because they distracted from domestic political circumstances.
InhaltsverzeichnisTable of Contents Origins and Beginnings of Censorship in Germany From the very beginning, the development of printing in Europe was accompanied and influenced — albeit to varying degrees — by measures aimed at controlling it.
This is particularly true of Germany. While Germany was initially similar to other European countries and to the rest of the world as regards the censorship of printing, the gradual removal of such measures and the emergence of freedom of the press began earlier in many other countries.
In Germany, this process took more time and was characterized not only by occasional progress, but also by the repeated reversion to an authoritarian relationship between the state and the press. Censorship had always been the primary means of controlling the press. The word "censor" is derived from the Latin verb censere, which means "to evaluate, to examine, to check".
In the Roman Empirecensors were officials who were appointed for a limited time period, and who adjudicated on public morality, besides estimating the value of property.
Though there was no printed press in antiquity, restrictions regarding public utterances existed. From this point, it was possible to make and distribute numerous copies of any text. To prevent the dissemination of a text, it was necessary to prevent it being printed at all. Thus, the first measures to control printing were introduced just a few decades after the emergence of printing technology.
InBerthold von Henneberg —the archbishop-elector of Mainzissued the first decree establishing a censorship commission for the entire archbishopric. Censorship had its origins in the religious realm because it was initially primarily religious works and texts for liturgical purposes that were printed.
The aim of the prescribed supervision was to maintain doctrinal consistency, but moral and educative concerns also entered into these considerations. The printing of a proscribed text resulted in serious penalties, including excommunication.
Censorship emerged in three main stages: Initially, the supervision of printing was organized solely by the church. This supervision was subsequently increasingly adopted by secular institutions also.
Finally, censorship by secular authorities became the dominant kind. Indeed, censorship by the Catholic Church reached its apogee during the Counter Reformation.
Inan index of proscribed books was introduced, the Index librorum prohibitorumwhich gave a permanent form to the censorship policies of the church. Over the centuries, the number of texts in the Index grew as new titles were added, and it contained — in addition to theological works — many scientific and literary works which the Inquisition or the Congregation of the Index believed to be in contravention of church doctrine or the opinions of the church.
This process was primarily driven by the Reformationwhich gave rise to a flood of pamphlets and polemical texts, which raised tensions among the population of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation.It was less than a month into his presidency when President Trump ramped up his “fake news” battle with several national media outlets, referring to them at the time as the “enemy of the.
Censorship and Freedom of the Press in the 20th Century. At the end of the 19th century, the centuries-long struggle against censorship and for freedom of the press seemed to have been won in large parts of Europe, at least in terms of the formal legal position, even if the limits of freedom were still contested in many cases, and conflicts.
Yeah, but the problem is the press office of the FBI isn't an expert source on firearms knowledge and I doubt those that work in their press office are vetted for their knowledge of proper terminology, so we shouldn't really be surprised that they make mistakes.
