Summary

The paranoia and recriminations that have been unleashed by religious inquisitions are quite extraordinary.  
This audiobook explores the Inquisition in depth, leaving no stone unturned to find the root of what drove these religious persecutions.  
Most people know about the Spanish Inquisition, but there were other inquisitions, such as those carried out by the Romans and the Portuguese. What was it that motivated these diehard religious zealots to squash all contrary views from their midst?  
It is rather easy to paint one side as the “good guys” and the other as the “bad guys.” But unless we are a bunch of kids playing cops and robbers, this is an overly simplistic, narrow-minded, and lazy interpretation of what is a very complex history. In this audiobook, we explore all the dark nooks and crannies of what sparked massive inquiries into the faith of others and rampant persecution of religious beliefs. 
In this captivating audiobook, you will discover the following:The root causes of the Inquisition;The real motivations behind the persecution;The harsh torture methods used to extract confessions;The estimated toll the Inquisition took on people’s lives;How the Inquisition ended;Its impact and legacy;And much more!
