I loved this book The Inuisition is probably the first time that I had read a book that solely focuses on the history of the Inuisition It was so interesting to get an insight into a history of brutality and violence that I had otherwise not been exposed too More interesting for me was to understand the beginning of modern institutions that were created as a result of the Inuisition to really see the impact that this period of hyper religion had on the modern age about 200 years after its official disbanding Michael has an interesting way of writing which was very helpful towards understanding how society functioned throughout the period of the Inuisition He made sure to not just focus on the church but also on its opposing cultures such as the uenching of Paganism and the rise of Lutherism Such rising or dispersing groups are fundamental to an understanding of the Inuisition and it was really great for Michael to focus on them with just as much emphasis as on the main group of the Catholic Church I think it was also good that he didn t shy away from the brutality of the time nor did he necessarily condemn it He presented it as it was and made sure to show that it wasn t just the church which allowed this but also the very people who were ultimately condemned An interesting part of the book was Michel s focus on the way that the Inuisition operates in today s society It was actually very shocking to see that the Holy Office which operated under the Grand Inuisitor actually operates today only under a different name In fact the Congregation For the Doctrine Of The Faith was run by the current pope and while not responsible for the burnings of unfaithful has certainly been responsible for the deaths of thousands of AIDS victims and for the excommunication of many unfaithful or inuisitive theologians However I didn t give the book a five star rating because in my opinion I think Michael focused too much on the modern part of the Inuisition By doing so he tended to focus on issues that while related to the current operation of the modern Inuisition were not vital to an understanding of it and by a result started to become uite preachy about how it operates As I am not religious I wasn t personally offended but by blurring the lines between a historical analysis and a modern review he started to become judgemental until even the last line was an examination of what he believes it s future to be Don t get me wrong I think it was still great but I would have preferred maybe just two chapters on the current Catholic Church not five or so I would definitely suggest this book to any historical nut or anyone who really just wants to get to know the Catholic Church

The Inuisition

Free download The Inuisition The Inuisition review ì 104 Michael Baigent ì 4 review After the Albigensian Crusade against the Cathars of south west France in 1208 a Spanish monk later canonized as St Dominic took up the cudgels by establishing a kind of secret police to ferret out heresy thus began. Nobody expects the Spanish Inuisition Oh boy Do you remember those days when the Papal Estates went completely batshit insane and started burning people all over the world to preserve the real faith Ah Those were the good old days How about that time when they excommunicated all who would argue with them and even prohibited every good christian of reading a shitload of books Those were rather fine days also Oh wait Do you remember those really awesome times when the church denied adopting reasonable instance regarding important issues such as birth control and sexual orientation They sure screwed that one up ehFunny thing They never admitted they were wrong for doing any of it

Free download The Inuisition The Inuisition review ì 104 Michael Baigent ì 4 review Lish new authorities that were an intellectual euivalent of the Inuisition The Inuisition offers a fascinating narrative account of one of the most influential and horrifying movements in the history of western Euro. You know for a book titled The Inuisition it s uite strange to have 23 of the book not about the inuisitions What is there on the inuisitions of Europe and Spain is uite interesting though put together in a bit of an awkward way each topic is presented chronologically but there is significant overlap so it ends up treading over the same ground in uite a lot of points and tends to restate points over and over as if the reader was unable to understand the previous chapters The rest of the book is talking about witchcraft freemasonry and then goes way in to the 20th century Of course it s stupid not to think that there would be talk of what happened after the period of the 13th century to the 17th century but that period is the most well known just in the general public consciousness for the religious inuisitions and is a minority in this bookThey also reference Dostoevsky s The Grand Inuisitor section of The Brothers Karamazov at least once per chapter We get it dudes it s the introduction and we GET IT
