Gutenberg's World: the Rise of a New Technology in 15th century Mainz
Goldsmith and inventor Johannes Gutenberg was a political exile from Mainz, Germany when he began experimenting with printing in Strasbourg, France in 1440. He returned to Mainz several years later and by 1450, had a printing machine perfected and ready to use commercially: The Gutenberg press.

In this illustrated talk on the world and work of Johannes Gutenberg, our speaker describes the principal actors involved and explains the specific conditions in the medieval world of Mainz, Germany, that gave rise to printing with moveable type.
