Set in Mexico City in 1649, when the Spanish Inquisition holds sway, TheInquisitor’s Diary takes the form of the diary of Fray Alonso, the most zealous advocate of their mission, as he struggles to win promotion in the church. Outmaneuvered by his rivals, he is dispatched on a seemingly futile journey to the north, where he unexpectedly befriends a captured heretic—a Marrano, or crypto-Jew—and finds himself questioning all he believes in. Thought-provoking and philosophical, this novel brings the Inquisition to troubling life, with all its moral darkness and complexity.

“We follow Alonso’s journey as he is dispatched by the Inquisitor General to the country’s northern frontier to root out ‘heresy, apostasy, backsliding.’ . . . This somber work seeks to uncover those subterranean impulses that surge beneath Alonso’s fate.”—Literary Review

Book Description Haus Publishing, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Mexico City, 1649. The Spanish Inquisition holds sway over the capital. Fray Alonso is the most zealous advocate of their mission; amidst the veiled discords of the Holy Office, his diary reveals a world where politics and sanctity are intertwined as he seeks to win the promotion that will gratify his aspirations of both stature and piety. However, outmanoeuvred by his rivals in a struggle for power, Alonso is forced to leave the city on a seemingly futile journey northward, where an unlikely friendship with a captured heretic will prove the catalyst for a revolution of his assumptions. Alonso is forced to question all his received values, and is left with a choice between instinctual justice and his own pride and desire. The bond between the two men proves to be simultaneously a blessing and a test. Seller Inventory # AA79781908323613
