Inquisition


#1

I’ve heard that the Sacred Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome is sometimes called the “Holy Office of the Inquisition”, especially among traditional Catholics. Is this correct?


#2

Yes and no.

Yes, that is its original name. However, its name has been changed twice since then. It is not the correct name when referring to it today.
