Chapters from the Religious History of Spain




Lea Brothers & Co.
















Quoted from the author's "Preface."

"IN prosecuting researches for a history of the Spanish Inquisition, some phases of its activity have seemed to me worthy of more elaborate treatment than could be accorded to them in a general narrative. These are investigated in the following essays, and I trust that they may be found to throw light on some of the very curious problems connected with the remarkable vicissitudes, intellectual and material, through which the Spanish race has passed. The place occupied by Spain in the history of European civilization is unique in many respects, and the causes and consequences of its peculiar development suggest numerous questions full of interest and instruction to the enquirer.

In the essay on Censorship I have departed somewhat from the sphere of purely religious history, but in Spain Church and State were so intimately connected that in some fields of
activity it is impossible to treat them separately. In its origin Censorship was devised by the Church to preserve purity of faith; then the papacy made use of it to strengthen the defences of the temporal power, and the State naturally took hold of the machinery thus created to serve its own purposes. No survey of the subject could be complete that did not consider it in both aspects."
