"NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise…surprise and fear…fear and surprise…. Our two weapons are fear and surprise…and ruthless efficiency…. Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency…and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope…. Our *four*…no… *Amongst* our weapons…. Amongst our weaponry…are such elements as fear, surprise…. I’ll come in again." – Monty Python
The Inquisition (what a show)
The Inquisition (here we go)
We know you’re wishin’ that we’d go away.
But the Inquisition’s here and it’s here to-
"Hey Toquemada, walk this way."
"I just got back from the Auto-de-fe."
"Auto-de-fe? What’s an Auto-de-fe?"
"It’s what you oughtn’t to do but you do anyway."
On a more serious note:
This study should be interesting. Hopefully it’s balanced and fair (no Fox News pun intended).
The Vatican will soon publish a study on the Inquisition, containing the proceedings of an international conference held in Rome in 1998.
