    by Armin Siedlecki

    The role of women in the the production of early printed books is often overlooked, but many printing presses in the sixteenth century were owned and operated by women and it was fairly common for a woman to continue the operation of a press after the death of her husband. The development of printing arguably had a greater impact on social and cultural change than any other industry during the Renaissance and Reformation and women played an important role in this central aspect of the sixteenth-century economy.
