5.0 out of 5 stars the inquisition, 20 July 2011
This review is from: Inquisition: The Reign of Fear (Hardcover)
This remarkable book deals with the Inquisition which started in 1428 spread from Spain to Portugal, Africa,Asia,and Sooth America but did not oficially end till 1834 even thoygh it had been inactive for sometime.
The author suggests the Inquisition was more a political activity than a religious one as it was never sanctioned by the Pope who apparently had no power to stop it.However the Inquisition started as persecution of Jews and Moslems it spread to homosexuals,heretics,deviant priests and to all people who did not conform to the ideals of the Inquisition.
Very well written,researched and easy to read this book is a clear indictment of mans inhumanity to man but also demonstrates mans indominatable spirit
Ther are extensive notes,a good bibliography and a few illustrations.
