This book shows numerous documents and objects from various fonds of the Archives of the Roman Inquisition.
Selecting these documents, that could arouse real interest rather than morbid curiosity in the viewer, has been an exciting and delicate task.
The book requires an open and inquisitive mind, as open and inquisitive as the mind of those who have made these historical documents available to the public.
This is not always obvious to modern man, too often accustomed to judge the events of the past by adopting a now fashionable politically correct approach.Written in Italian and English.
