The Inquisition

Post by Orfeo on Sat Jul 08, 2017 7:32 pm

I´ve recently read a spanish history magazine about the Inquisition. The point is, that there are some articles that are very interesting:

-Pedro IV (1319-1387) "the Ceremonious", an irritable and sometimes arrogant monarch.
-Music in the Middle Ages

And the most interesting are these:

-Alfonso X (1221-1284) "the Savior"
-Life in the Middle Ages

These two articles are very good because of their focus. They focus in another version of the Middle Ages, less darker and more "open-mind".
Alfonso was a guy who favoured arts and, more prominently, scientific experimentation.
The question is.... Where the Middle Ages really that bad for people in Europe?

I think a lot of people try to compare the modern day to the Middle Ages. If you do that there is no contest. But most people in the Middle ages were content with what they had even if it does not compare to what we have now or even what people had in the Roman Empire

Chapman: Trouble at mill.
Cleveland: Oh no - what kind of trouble?
Chapman: One on't cross beams gone owt askew on treadle.
Cleveland: Pardon?
Chapman: One on't cross beams gone owt askew on treadle.
Cleveland: I don't understand what you're saying.
Chapman: [slightly irritatedly and with exaggeratedly clear accent] One of the cross beams has gone out askew on the treadle.
Cleveland: Well what on earth does that mean?
Chapman: *I* don't know - Mr Wentworth just told me to come in here and say that there was trouble at the mill, that's all - I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition!

Much of what we know about the Inquisition is the result of protestant propaganda. the middle ages were not as barbaric as we imagine. Did a lot of bad things happen, yes. Were a lot of people ill-informed? Yes to that as well. However, just because of the time period is different doesn't mean common sense didn't exist.

We have a mission to convert the Jews (Jew ja Jew ja Jew ja Jews)
We're gonna teach them wrong from right
We're gonna help them see the light
And make an offer that they can't refuse (that the Jews just can't refuse)

Confess (confess, confess)
Don't be boring
Say yes (say yes, say yes)
Don't be dull

A fact
You're ignoring:
It's better to lose your skullcap than your skull!

No, the Middle Ages weren't that bad. Lest we forget, the Inquisition existed around the same time as the Protestant Reformations, and in order to demonize the Catholic Church many Protestants made up... well basically propaganda showing barbaric acts being committed by the Inquisition. In reality, it wasn't normal for Catholics to burn people at the stake in Spain during the 1500s.

Of course, I am a Catholic so there is some bias.
