This paper resumes the evolution of censorship in Bohemia during the Jagellonian era and in the first half of the reign of Ferdinand I. Censorship in Bohemia started slowly and inconsistently in the first half of 16th century. During the reign of Ferdinand censorship became more thorough as part of Ferdinand’s imperial attitudes. The new system of privileges started after 1547 and laid the foundation for new publishing procedures in the second half of 16th century.
