The Inquisition has been described as the most misunderstood institution in history. This book examines the Inquisition in Venice and explores the range of its activities in the 16th century. It also considers the ideology which sustained the tribunal, the response of governments and the laity to its work, and the kind of activities it sought to prevent or to prescribe. The book also aims to throw some light on the Counter-Reformation and of the nature of religious belief in early modern Italy.
