Beginning in 1478 with the Bull issued by Pope Sixtus IV, which empowered Spanish sovereigns to exterminate heresy in their realms, the Inquisition pursued its ruthless course for three and a half centuries. Listening to the irrational and relentless atrocities documented by Dr. Cecil Roth of Oxford is made bearable only by the clear, pleasing British accent of Nadia May. The text is further enhanced by her excellent pronunciation of names and places as the intensity and scope of the operation increase and spread from Spain to France, Italy and the New World.
