Inquisition


Combating or suppressing heresy

I0001 Catholic Encyclopedia art Inquisition Vol VIII p 34.doc
“In the Bull ‘Ad exstirpanda’  (1252), Innocent IV says:  ‘When those adjudged guilty of heresy have been given up the civil power by the bishop or his representative, or the Inquisition, the podesta, or chief magistrate, of the city shall take them at once, and shall, within five days at the most, execute the laws made against them.’. . . The Civil authorities, therefore, were enjoined by the popes, under pain of excommunication, to execute the legal sentences that condemned impenitent heretics to the stake.  It is to be noted that excommunication itself was no trifle, for, if the person excommunicated did not free himself from excommunication within a year, he was held by the legislation of that period to be a heretic, and incurred all the penalties that affected heresy.’—Catholic Encyclopedia, art.  “Inquisition,” Vol. VIII, p. 34.

History of St Bartholomews
I0008 Western Watchman Nov 21 1912

The editor of the Western Watchman, a Catholic journal, said in the issue of November 21, 1912, “Our heroes are the Duke of Alva and Catherin de Medici.  They knew the Hugenots, and they drove them off the continent.  You cannot excite any pity in our souls by whining accounts of Catholic atrocities in the 17th century.  We have never written a line in extenuation or palliation of the Inquisition.  We never thought it needed defense.”
