Characters of the Inquisition
Well respected historian and author, William Thomas Walsh, refutes the many lies about the Inquisition raised by the enemies of the Church ... Protestant, Jewish and atheist. Shows why it was instituted, the purpose it served, its long-term effects, and why it preserved Catholic countries from the infamous witch-hunts besmirching Protestant history. All this is achieved by narrating the stories of six Grand Inquisitors. Exonerates the Church of all wrong-doing. Really dispels the lies about this institution.
