Griffin's study reveals the virtually unknown lives of the men who worked in the sixteenth-century presses. Using the papers of the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisition, he provides insights INTO popular culture and religion; the history of printing, reading, and writing; the Inquisition; and the double lives led by lower-class Protestants living within a vigilant Catholic society.
