Ans: Print and popular literature encouraged many distinctive interpretations of religious faiths and ideas. In the 16th century, Manocchio, a roller in Italy, began to read books available readily in his locality.

As a result, Manocchio was hauled up twice and ultimately executed when the Roman Catholic Church began its inquisition.
