The Teenagers Who Started The Spanish Inquisition | Secret Files of The Inquisition | Parable

Published on Nov 15, 2021
Spain, 1478, a land where Christians, Muslims and Jews have lived in tolerance for centuries. But, that time is ending. A young king and queen bent on immortality proclaim themselves the Catholic monarchs and start an inquisition. Jews who had converted to Christianity are accused of secretly sabotaging the Christian faith. Thousands perish in a ritual called the act of faith. The assassination of the inquisitors sets off a wave of reprisals. Mothers will die to protect their children, and the highest in the last will pay the ultimate price. It is the beginning of the Spanish empire and a long dark night that will last for centuries.

For over 600 years the Inquisition enforced Catholic Orthodoxy around the world. For centuries the records have been locked away, becoming the subject of myth and legend. In 1998 the Vatican opened the archive of the Holy Office of the Inquisition...on a limited basis.
