“Heresy and Error”:|
The Ecclesiastical Censorship of Books, 1400–1800
An Exhibition at Bridwell Library, September 20 – December 17, 2010
|THE INDEX OF EXPURGATIONS||
Bridwell Library’s copy of the 1584 Biblia
Sacra compiled by Franciscus Vatablus, note 20
on Psalm 16 was expurgated after the words “deseres
animam meam,” and note 22 was deleted entirely.
Although these expurgations match those dictated by
both volumes of the Biblia Sacra
indicate that the expurgations were made by Diego
León Plaza, censor of the Inquisition, in accordance
with an earlier Spanish Index librorum
expurgatorum, compiled in 1612 for Bernardo
de Sandoval y Rojas, the Archbishop of Toledo.
