Printing is a process for reproducing text and images using a master form or template. The earliest non-paper products involving printing include cylinder seals and objects such as the Cyrus Cylinder and the Cylinders of Nabonidus. The earliest known form of printing as applied to paper was woodblock printing, which appeared in China before 220 AD. Later developments in printing technology include the movable type invented by Bi Sheng around 1040 AD and the printing press invented by Johannes Gutenberg in the 15th century. The technology of printing played a key role in the development of the Renaissance and the scientific revolution, and laid the material basis for the modern knowledge-based economy and the spread of learning to the masses.

Isotta Nogarola (1418–1466) was an Italian writer and intellectual who is said to be the first major female humanist and one of the most important humanists of the Italian Renaissance. She inspired generations of artists and writers, among them Lauro Quirini and Ludovico Foscarini and contributed to a centuries-long debate in Europe on gender and the nature of woman. Her most influential work was a literary dialogue, De pari aut impari Evae atque Adae peccato written in 1451 in which she discussed the relative sinfulness of Adam and Eve. She argued that woman could not be held both to be weaker in nature and to be more culpable in original sin. Therefore, by a reductio ad absurdum argument women's weakness could be disproved. Nogarola also wrote Latin poems, orations, further dialogues, and letters, twenty-six of which survive.
