The Growth of Printing

According to Paul Starr, The Creation of Media "Economic and Religious forces played an
important role in the growth of printing and it helped shaped the international world of print" (pg.27).

I agree with this statement because back in the 1500's the church was one of the ways that printed material got to the poor. Anotther way that printed material got into the hands of the less fortunate was when people published pamphlets. The church helped pave the way for printing. During this time the church was a place where people got their knowledge from.

A good start. Next time make the picture smaller.

You need to read a little further. The Church has played the role you describe but not in the early history of print. The Catholic Church sought to limit the spread of early print so that they could contol its content.
