Who Made The First Printing Press? [8 REPLIES FOUND]

First, in 1087 AD, a group of nomads called the Khitans attempted to invade the Korean peninsula 👍 This prompted the Goryeo government to create its own Tripitaka with woodblock printing, perhaps with the aim of preserving Korean Buddhist identity against invaders 🙌 The attempt would be prescient; it preserved the concept and technique for later years, when more invaders eventually arrived 😊 The Mongol ruler Genghis Khan created the greatest empire of human history in the 12th century and the 13th century. It extended from Persia to the Pacific Coast of Asia. After he died in 1227, his successor, Ögedei Khan, continued conquering, including gaining ground that Genghis Khan had never held. In 1231, Ögedei ordered the invasion of Korea, and in 1232, invading Mongol troops reached the capital. In order to conquer Korea, Ogedei ordered the burning of the Tripitaka in Korean.

Johannes Gutenberg, in full Johann Gensfleisch zur Laden zum Gutenberg, (born 14th century, Mainz —died probably February 3, 1468, Mainz), German craftsman and inventor who originated a method of printing from movable type. The invention included elements such as a metal alloy that melts quickly, cools rapidly, and can be used to create durable reusable types. An oil-based ink could also stick to metal type well and transfer to paper well. And a press for applying even pressure to printed surfaces. This was likely to have been adapted from the presses that were used for wine, oil and paper production. The European technology used until then for printing letters on many surfaces and inks did not have these characteristics. Woodblock printing. Gutenberg’s printing press was considered a history-changing invention, making books widely accessible and ushering in an “information revolution.” (last revised 4 days ago by Matti Jamison from Shishi, China)

To the best of our knowledge today, the credit for movable type’s invention goes to civil minister Choe Yun-ui, who printed the Buddhist text called Sangjeong Gogeum Yemun using bronze movable type. This was, according to most sources, the first printing press anywhere in the world. The 50-volume book took a lot of work to print, but it was successful printed by 1250. After that, bronze movable font was adopted. While there’s a record of these early texts existing, the first books made with metal movable type have been lost. Jikji (a Buddhist text) is the oldest text ever printed using movable text. This text was published in 1377.
