Henry Kamen's classic survey of the Spanish Inquisition, where the author incorporates the latest research in multiple languages to offer a new and thought-provoking view of this fascinating period. Kamen sets the notorious Christian tribunal into the broader context of Islamic and Jewish culture in the Mediterranean, reassesses its consequences for Jewish culture, measures its impact on Spain s intellectual life, and firmly rebuts a variety of myths and exaggerations that have distorted understandings of the Inquisition. He concludes with disturbing reflections on the impact of state security organisations in our own time.


Henry Kamen is a fellow of the Royal Historical Society and a world authority on Spanish history.
