In this study, we present the first large-scale quantitative analysis of the full corpus of censored historical Hebrew manuscripts that survived through the centuries. A new multi-dimensional data-driven approach was applied to explore the influence of censorship on the creation of new manuscripts by Hebrew writers in Italy during the 16th- 18th centuries. Our findings demonstrate that there was a substantial decrease in creation of new manuscripts in the periods of high censorship activity.
