Bowdlerization

Thomas Bowdler (July 11, 1754 February 24, 1825) was an English physician who published an expurgated edition of William Shakespeare's work that he considered to be more appropriate than the original for women and children. He similarly edited Edward Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. His expurgation was the subject of some criticism and ridicule and, through the eponym bowdlerise (or bowdlerize)[1], his name is now associated with prudish censorship of literature, motion pictures and television programmes. --[1]
