The Inquisition

The Inquisition

Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh


After the Albigensian campaign opposed to the Cathars of south-west France in 1208, a Spanish monk - later canonized as St Dominic - took up the cudgels via setting up one of those mystery police to ferret out heresy - hence begun the notorious Inquisition. Baigent and Leigh inform the full notable tale, taking it on into the 19th century and exhibiting how after the Doctrine of Papal Infallibility in 1870 the Vatican tried to set up new professionals that have been an highbrow similar of the Inquisition. The Inquisition deals a desirable narrative account of 1 of the main influential and frightening activities within the heritage of western Europe.
