What was role of printing Press in renaissance?

The printing press played a very crucial role in encouraging the learning process, thus having a great contribution in renaissance. The invention of movable type of printing (1450) is considered as one of the most significant developments of that time. Since printing was more accurate than copying by hand, it made books more reliable. This eventually increased the supply of books and in a particular year of the 16th Century, more than 24,000 copies of one of Erasmus’s books were printed.
