Product description

Review

"Kamen's 1965 "The Spanish Inquisition" set a standard of clarity and objectivity in a traditionally contentious field. This new edition, the fruit of 50 years of scholarship and meditation, corrects with hard facts and penetrating analysis many entrenched myths about Spain and her 350-year-long Inquisition. It will set the agenda for the next generation of Spanish intellectual historians."--David Gitlitz, author of "Secrecy and Deceit: The Religion of the Crypto-Jews"
--David Gitlitz

"Despite voluminous publication on the Spanish Inquisition over the past four decades, Kamen's work remains the most accessible, comprehensive, and substantively argued English-language introduction to the Spanish Inquisition. Incorporating a significant amount of new scholarship that has appeared in the fifteen years since the publication of the last edition, this volume retains its place in an increasingly dynamic field of study, and is a welcome refreshing of arguments from a known voice in the field."--Kimberly Lynn, Western Washington University--Kimberly Lynn
