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. Torquemada & the Inquisitors is the story of extraordinary religious personalities, and a history of Spain at a deeply psychological level.
