Overview

A History of the Inquisition in Spain provides a detailed look into the events of the Spanish Inquisition. In 1484, Catholic monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella instituted the Inquisition to eradicate heresy and enforce uniform Catholic beliefs in Spain. The result was 300 years of violence and the bloodiest of the Christian inquisitions. Henry Charles Lea offers stunningly detailed and vigorously researched accounts of this historical era. This collection is for scholars, students, or anyone else interested in the Spanish Inquisition.
