Gutenberg was a German printer. He was the first in Europe to use movable type. It had actually been used in China since the 400’s, but he was the first in Europe to use it. He invented the printing press. He lived from 1400 to 1468. His printing press changed the way people read. He made the Gutenberg Bible, which was the first book printed. Suddenly, people could actually read the Bible themselves and not depend on priests to tell them what to think. Millions of books had been printed by 1500. Books were new to common people. Ideas spread quickly. Literacy rose. People began to question the pope’s authority.
