Synopsis

Documentary that examines the Inquisition. Established by Pope Gregory IX in 1231 as a special court to curb heresy, these papal tribunals sought to stamp out everything from witchcraft to Judaism over the centuries. Its most famous victim was Galileo, who was condemned as a heretic in 1633. Recently opened Vatican archives bring new historical information about the Inquisition to light.
