  4. Actually, I don't think any of those potential answers is correct.

    A is incorrect because the Church of England was established in 1534, well after the invention of the printing press (c. 1440). In addition, even though peasants weren't forbidden to learn to read, very few (if any) had the leisure to learn. They were too busy feeding and sheltering their families.

    B is incorrect because the Orthodox Church is not same as the Roman Catholic Church. Plus, it was centered in Constantinople, not in England or Germany.

    D is incorrect because there were no laws or rules ("knowledge was reserved") preventing peasants from learning to read and having texts. See A above.
