The Spanish Inquisition, 1478-1614
This collection of previously untranslated court documents, testimonials, and letters portrays the Inquisition in vivid detail, offering fresh perspectives on such topics as the Inquisition's persecution of Jews and Muslims, the role of women in Spanish religious culture, the Inquisition's construction and persecution of witchcraft, daily life inside an inquisition prison, and the relationship between the Inquisition and the Spanish Monarchy.

The documents in this book were very helpful in bettering my understanding of the persecution of Jews and Muslim, and life in the prisons.
It seems to be a very interesting book. I had either forgotten or didn't know that the term was Latin and actually only meant investigation from back in the Roman Empire times
