It didn't just have to be the "sin & sex" content that got the censors going either - a lot of the seventeenth century philosophers I am now reading had to tone down anything that might have been seen as opposing the church's dogmatic views. They often had to publish works anonymously to avoid losing professional appointments or even prosecution.

Ebooks have really opened up the whole "backlist" of published literature - some very good projects here for some of these works to be republished online. We need a lot more "Project Gutenberg" support - how about some of those big companies throwing a few dollars their way?
