In 1998, the Vatican opened its centuries-old archives of the Inquisition, the longest and most notorious suppression in religious history. From those documents sprang this epic four-part docudrama, which re-creates the true stories of victims from this dark chapter in Christianity. The series gathers commentary from an esteemed cadre of writers and theologians, including Vatican official Rev. Joseph A. Di Noia and Medieval scholar David Gitlitz.
