The Church typically advised against the masses gaining too much knowledge and therefore not able to be controlled.
Oh! I wouldn't say it so radically because it looks just as the same sentence of this beardet which is, that the religion is like an opium for the peoples.
The church isn't only your own church where you are going for the sunday preache. The church is that institution where many knowledge and scientific has be done, too. I think only at St. Thomas for whom the soul is identical with wisdom.
Now, the power of the church - and that is the problem with every religion, not only with the christianisme - better, the power in every thing likes to be unique and use sometimes methods which are not so legitime as they want to be....

With all my peacefull thoughts
