A history of the Inquisition of the Middle Ages by Henry Charles Lea( Book )

This comprehensive three-volume history of the medieval Inquisition by the influential American scholar Henry Charles Lea, first published in 1888, was firmly based on primary sources, and adopted a rationalist approach that departed from the pious tone of earlier histories of the middle ages. Lea was convinced that the Inquisition was not arbitrarily devised and implemented but was an inevitable consequence of forces that were dominant in thirteenth-century Christian society. In order to give as full a picture of the Inquisition as possible, Lea

Torture by Henry Charles Lea( Book )

10 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in English and German and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, published as part four of Henry Charles Lea's 'Superstition and Force', is one of the most succinct accounts in English of the place of torture in the legal process from the Roman Empire to the nineteenth century. His study suggest that torture occupied a far more complex place in the legal sociology of the period between the third and the eighteenth centuries and the revival of torture in the twentieth century raises once again the question of torture's true place in the realms of law. Lea's wide scholarship and meticulous respect for original sources make this study one of the most reliable accounts of the history of torture available in English. -- Publisher description

The ordeal by Henry Charles Lea( Book )

7 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Charles Lea was one of the first American historians to use what would later be termed comparative and anthropological approaches to history. Under his pen, the study of the medieval ordeal becomes a study in cultural history.Reprinted here from the fourth revised edition of 1892, the book begins by tracing the role of the ordeal in non-Western and ancient societies, showing the mental world to which it belongs: a limited trust in the public order and purely human methods of inquiry, and a larger faith in divine intervention and immanent justice. The work then describes the uses of the institution through the European Middle Ages to its final abolition, and in the process offers a rich typology of ordeals. Additional documents included in this edition present formulas and descriptions of some of the ordeals most frequently used: the ordeal by boiling water, by hot water, by cold water, by hot iron and water, by glowing plowshares, by fire, and the ordeal of the cross
