Many religious institutions have in the past tried to limit secular entertainment, usually under the guise of combating vice. (As in. The village dance leads to sex, then people have babies, then the church has to provide for the unwanted children. It did not of course do any providing if it could help it.) Yet look back, to say medieval Europe, and churches of were the only institutions where most people could go for entertainment, hear music, see art or listen to audio books, (the Bible). Did they try to suppress secular arts to control vice, or just to maintain their monopoly on the entertainments industry ? And does the religious claim still pedalled today, that morality comes only from faith, not owe a lot simply to that sales pitch ?
