Inquisitors by John Edwards
Book DescriptionThe mentality of Spain's Inquisitors has fascinated people for centuries. Yet remarkably little has been written about these individuals, who together condemned thousands of people to degradation, imprisonment and death. John Edwards, a renowned expert on the Spanish Inquisition, 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. The Inquisitors is the story of extraordinary religious personalities, and a history of Spain at a deep psychological level.
