At the dawn of the 16th Century the Spanish Inquisition had existed for some time. However, after years of persecuting the Conversos the Inquisition underwent many reforms. These reforms allowed the Spanish Inquisition to guide the nation of Spain through the traumatic days of the Reformation.
The incredible difficulties that came out of the Protestant Reformation were mostly negated in Spain because the Inquisition enacted the Index of Prohibited Books and Authors. The Index helped Spain avoid the spilling of blood, both Catholic and Protestant, that the other nations in Europe experienced.
From our last video (link here) we saw the darker side of the Inquisition, however, in this video we get to see the life saving acts of the Spanish Inquisition. Hope you enjoy!
