Only until the second Vatican Council in 1962. :-D

The list was quite extensive and included such ML notables as  
Laurence Sterne, Voltaire, Daniel Defoe, Honor de Balzac, Jean-Paul  
Sartre, and almost all your favorite philosophers and political  
thinkers -- almost anyone who might get you to think.

As I recall, reading Thomas Aquinas and Augustine was OK (under close  
supervision, of course).
