The history minor here is embarassed to admit it, but my knowledge of the Inquisition is shockingly poor (but, in my defense, I WAS most concentrating in Chinese history in college ).
Anyway, could anyone suggest some good books in the Inquisition? My father (anti-Catholic) and my friend’s husband (v.v. anti-Catholic) love flinging this one around like it’s the end-all-be-all of reasons why Holy Mother Church is nothing more than a cesspool of evil. I’d kinda sorta like to be able to refute some of their more outlandish claims.
