The Inqusition - persecuting the heresy of free thought for 600 years.
In 1998 the Vatican opened the Archive of the Holy Office of the Inquisition ... on a limited basis.
The Roman Inquisition begins with Bishop Giovanni Pietro Carafa in 1522. He is the leader of the Theatine order of monks sworn to attack the enemies who threaten the power of Rome. Carafa's plans for exterminating heretics is put into practice once he assumes the papacy as Pope Paul IV in 1555.
