A history of the Inquisition of the middle ages by Henry Charles Lea( Book )

120 editions published between 1887 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 Volume 3 Lea focuses on particular aspects of the Inquisition. He considers the impact of the Inquisition on scholarship and intellectual life and on faith and culture, and describes how movements including the Franciscans and the Fraticelli gained prominence. He shows how the concept of political heresy was used by the Church and the State, and argues that belief in sorcery and witchcraft in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries was stimulated by the Church authorities

43 editions published between 1908 and 2015 in English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Charles Lea's account of the Inquisition in Italy, Spain and South America was first published in 1908. Drawing on primary source material, the American historian gives a detailed account of the workings of the Inquisition and its individual tribunals in Sicily, Naples, Sardinia and Milan. He also describes the Inquisition in Malta, the Canary Islands, Mexico, Peru, New Granada and the Philippines. According to Lea the Inquisition persisted from the sixteenth right up to the nineteenth century. He demonstrates how some of the individuals entrusted with implementing the Inquisition abused their powers, and how the Inquisition in the Spanish colonies prevented the efficient running of governmental administrations. He focuses on some of the consequences of the Inquisition: Jews were banished from Naples, there were moves to exclude new Christians from the Church in Mexico, and the mysticism practised in New Granada was considered a grave threat to the Church

Torture by Edward Peters( Book )

12 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in English and German and held by 393 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
