The Medieval Church

I agree with the statement that illiterate worshipers in medieval times may have benefited more from the more temporal experience of icons, liturgy, and recitations. Did not the majority of popes basically outlaw or at least discourage personal Bible reading even for the literate, so that the priestly class could more readily control what common people considered to be truth?
