|CENSORSHIP IN MEXICO||
In this proclamation, the Mexican Inquisition lists twenty-one titles that may not be read without license to do so, forty books that are prohibited, and thirteen more texts that require expurgation. Among the expurgated books, No. 2 is St. Alfonso María de Ligorio’s Theologia moralis. The broadside mandates that in volume II, book 6, tract 3, chapter 2, problem 2, article 1, question 1, section 257, the entire passage beginning “Sed hoc non obstante” and ending “Sententiam esse valde probabilem” must be deleted.
