The Spanish Inquisition: A History

Joseph Pérez’s The Spanish Inquisition is a good overview of the history of this Catholic institution.

In Stock.

Description

Compared to Henry Kamen’s work, Joseph Pérez writes a more concise study on the Spanish Inquistion. If you want an overview of the origins, motives, mechanisms of control, techniques of interrogation and torture, and impact of the Spanish Inquisition, this book is a good choice. I must warn you that the number of victims are probably inflated and that some of his theses are unsubstantiated – like claiming that the indices of prohibited books made Spain unprepared for the Scientific Revolution, forgetting the intellectual development and research of, for instance, the School of Salamanca.
