The Spanish Inquisition is now a by-word for violence and religious intolerance. In 1478, at the instigation of the Catholic Ferdinand and Isabella, Torquemada led the Inquisition to root out heresy. There was no heresy to speak of in Spain, and in reality the Inquisition acted against converts from Judaism to Christianity who were suspected of retaining Jewish practice. This history is a catalogue of terror and torture - 2000 people were burnt at the stake, and hundreds more were subjected to horrific acts of abuse. John Edwards compellingly analyzes both the truths and the myths of this period along with the motivation behind it.
