There is perhaps nothing that evokes the grim, tortured terror of the middle ages more than the institution of the Inquisition. Long conceived as the worst imaginable combination of legal impunity and religious fanaticism, the inquisition remains more the object of horror than deeply understood. Originating in the 13th century attempt to suppress the dualist form of Christianity known as Catharism, the medieval Inquisition would grow to become one of the enduring institutions of European Christianity, surviving even to this day as the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith. In the first episode of a series, let’s explore the origins and eventual procedures of the medieval Inquisition. Follow up episodes will trace the development of the Inquisition, the various medieval heresies it combatted, the lives and works of the Inquisitors, and it's infamous Spanish and Roman versions.
