Spanish Inquisition: The Brutal Truth

For over 350 years, Spain's political and religious leaders carried on an Inquisition that terrified thousands of Non-Catholics by ruthlessly interrogating, torturing, or killing them. This documentary explores how the broad interpretation of the word "heresy" allowed these violent rulers to destroy so many lives. Viewers are introduced to some of the major figures behind this gross reign of terror and some of their most vulgar punishments.
