And why the reasons and reactions that are part of it are still with us :

' Strange Histories: The Trial of the Pig, the Walking Dead and Other Matters of Fact from the Medieval and Renaissance Worlds ' By Darren Oldridge is a 'must read' for anyone wishing to get a good perspective on *why* the Inquisition seemed like a good idea at the time Grin

This is one of the most informative books I have read in a long time and I especially welcomed the authors ability to convey the mind-set of these time periods which is so crucial to understanding why beliefs caused the religious and political effects that they did. There is also a  message regarding what we like to think of as 'the modern world'. You may change your mind about that after reading this excellent book. Beliefs change , people - not so much.

cheers,
Anaise

SORRY! I just realized this was a place to *ask* about books, not recommend them. *hangs head*

It's a place to TALK about books, not just to ask about them.
