The Roman Inquisition
Full Product Description
With unparalleled attention to archival sources and detail, Mayer portrays a highly articulated corporate bureaucracy with the pope at its head. He profiles the Cardinal Inquisitors, including those who would play a major role in Galileo's trials, and details their social and geographical origins, their education, economic status, earlier careers in the Church, and networks of patronage. At the point this study ends, circa 1640, Pope Urban VIII had made the Roman Inquisition his personal instrument and dominated it to a degree none of his predecessors had approached.
The Roman Inquisition by Thomas F. Mayer was published by University of Pennsylvania Press in January 2013. The ISBN for The Roman Inquisition is 9780812244731.
