Recommended Resource(s) on the Inquisition


I know there is a lot of misunderstanding and misinformation regarding what actually happened during the Inquisition.

Could anyone recommend a good book or website that takes an honest look at the Inquisition? I’m not looking for something to sugar-coat the bad stuff, but something that cuts through all the modern day misconceptions clearly and accurately.



This should get you started:



Thanks a bunch! It looks like some great info - exactly what I was looking for. I’ll have to remember to go to that site to look for info on other topics in the future.

It turns out I already had that site bookmarked, too. I have so many “favorites” that I forget about them! :slight_smile:
