The Spanish Inquisition was a key aspect of religious life in early modern Spain, especially any and every Catholic in Spain and its global empire was subject to its jurisdiction and efforts to enforce orthodoxy. In this course, students will learn about the establishment of the Inquisition, its legal practices, and its operations in Spain and its American and European territories. We will also rely on Inquisition documents as windows into larger themes, such as gender, race, identity, and power. Topics covered include Jewish and Muslim converts to Christianity, witchcraft, sanctity, magic, Protestantism, and censorship.
