Product description

Review

"A scholarly and vivid recasting of a painful era in which 32,000 innocent people went to the stake, is a salutary reminder of the potential savagery occasioned by religion."--John Cornwell, Sunday Times


"Brief, useful, and generally balanced."--Henry Kamen, Renaissance Quarterly
"Anyone looking for a basic overview of the Spanish Inquisition will find this volume clearly written, relatively concise, and generally reliable."--John T. Ford, Religious Studies Review
"With talk of shariah, the role of torture in national security, and the clash of civilizations, it's time for a fresh look at the Spanish Inquisition. Joseph Perez, emeritus professor at the University of Bordeaux, proves to be a good guide, carefully sifting the evidence, debunking myths, and placing religious data in the ethnographic contexts of power, class, and race."--James R. Kelly, Catholic Studies
