In 1827 Hume's History of England and all of his other works were placed on the Index of Prohibited Books. The article examines Hume's account of religion in the medieval books by using as a companion the censorship report (the "protestant" Hume was charged because of his views on real presence, usury, celibacy of the clergy, crusades, toleration, Thomas Becket and John Wickliffe). Hume's history of religion in England is the history of religion's never-ending impulses to free itself from idolatrous superstition (a pagan or Catholic sensible visible religion), which arises from a natural tendency and satisfies a human need.
