From Rule 13: It is also forbidden for anyone, acting on their own authority, to remove such errors, or to tear, cross out words from, or burn books, papers, or pages in which such errors might be found, without first showing them to the Inquisitors, so that they might be aware of them and give orders for appropriate action.
