"As to the Inquisition, my will is that it be enforced by the Inquisitors as of old, and as is required by all law, human and divine. This lies very near my heart, and I require you to carry out my orders. Let all prisoners be put to death, and suffer them no longer to escape through the neglect, weakness, and bad faith of the judges. If any are too timid to execute the edicts, I will replace them by men who have more heart and zeal."
-King Philip II of Spain, excerpt from letter on Inquisition, October 1565 (NOTE: TCW will be posting a new sub-page this week on today's Inquisition, to assist Our Pope Gregory XVIII in his efforts to combat/suppress heresy.
