The Roman Inquisition: The War Against The Reformation | Secret Files Of The Inquisition | Parable

Published on Oct 28, 2021
Venice, 1522, capital of tolerance and renaissance, and the centre for smugglers dealing in the banned literature of the protestant reformation. The church’s most powerful weapon will be a new type of inquisition, controlled by the Pope himself. He will use it to curtail the spread of a competing religion, and eliminate those who betray the faith. It will stop the flow of new ideas let loose by the printing press, and repress the birth of modern scientific thought. A new campaign in the battle for the souls of Europes Christians is about to begin.

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.
