Abstract

By means of very rare manuscripts and precious historical sources (dating back even to the 16th century), this book aims to reconstruct the varied and complex phenomenon of the Inquisition, with particular scientific reference to the events that took place and unfolded in Sicily through the centuries. Based on primary ancient documents, it constitutes a monographic and reasoned catalogue of the international exhibition on the evolution of the Inquisition, curated in Palermo (Italy) by Francesco Callari and Antonio Scaglione. The exhibition, which was supported by an authoritative Scientific Board, was awarded important institutional recognitions and, in particular, the Medal of the President of the Italian Republic. This cultural and scientific work intends to describe significant and indelible pages of European history through the careful consideration of emblematic and extraordinary testimonies from the past, whilst avoiding ideological prejudices and misleading or ambiguous legends.
