Prescribe vs proscribe

We should be very careful while using either one of these words, because they are opposites. Prescribe means 'to advise or order (the use of)', e.g. the books prescribed for study on this course.

Proscribe, on the other hand, means 'to condemn or prohibit', e.g. This book was formerly proscribed by the Church.
