"This absorbing historical study is concerned with the Rise, the Growth and the End of the Spanish Inquisition and endeavours to show how and why it came into existence. It analysis the personalities who were responsible, dn those who moulded it and kept it alive. It also studies those other important actors in the drama: the victims. From these people only can we discover why a nation could allow the Inquisition to exist as part of its daily life for four centuries."
