Description

The mentality of Spain's Inquisitors has fascinated people for centuries. This work investigates the Inquisitors-General, both as personalities - psychopaths to soulless bureaucrats - and as actors in the turbulent history of Spain between 1480, when the Inquisition started work, and its final abolition in 1834.show more
