Summary expansion
The enlightened pope Leon X, following the advice of his friend, Cardinal Egidio of Viterbo, gave permission to establish a Hebrew press in Rome, and officially endorsed Bomberg's project to print a complete edition of Talmud (see Amram, page 162). Bomberg's edition, generally considered to be an "uncensored" version, also contains the commentaries of Rashi and Tosafot
