9780029249802: Inquisition

For the past five hundred years, the specter of the Inquisition has haunted the Western imagination. In a superb interpretive history, Peters traces the origins and development of inquisitorial procedure from its secular roots in ancient Roman law to its most famous incarnation in the fiery punishments of the Spanish Inquisition.

Review:

"Tracing the Inquisition's history from its roots in Roman legal procedure through its growth under the Roman Church as an instrument to enforce religious orthodoxy and up to its depiction as a symbol of intellectual dissent (no longer simply the Inquisition, but now "The Inquisition) by such artists as Schiller, Verdi, and Dostoevski, Peters makes a forceful and cogent case that history and myth inform one another--thus making historical objectivity but another myth. Not only an excellent study of the Inquisition, but a piquant look at the methodology of historians."--"Kirkus Reviews
