“The Spanish translation of the Enchiridion that issued from the press of Miguel de Eguia, printer in Alcala, had a popular success without precedent in the history of Spanish printing up to that time. The translator was a famous preacher, Alonso Fernadez de Madrid, canon of the Cathedral of Palencia and archdeacon of Alcor. It first appeared in the spring of 1525 with a dedication to the Archbishop of Seville, Don Alonso Manrique, inquisitorgeneral. With such a translator and such a patron the book had a most auspicious beginning” Charles Fantazzi.

"5) Going into public libraries and ordering feminist books particularly ones with stuff about the goddess and serious radical arguments in them. This has two effects as the government is trying to shut down libraries because not enough people are using them. It does not occur to them that most libraries are not designed to be comfortable congenial places where you can hang out and expand your mind in relaxed peace. Also you are expanding the availability of feminist literature to those who cannot afford to buy them. You could combine this with a post campaign."
