no one expects the spanish inquisition!!!

not sure anyone is interested in this or not, but i stumbled across a multi-episode documentary from canada on the inquisition. it's kinda low budget, but still interesting.

the first episode is a little slow, but episode 2 and 3 are good.

it really gets me pissed off at points... torturing and killing people for nothing.
and occasionally there is a catholic priest who makes some comment like "well, we have to take these things in context of the society at that time."
he has a point, yes, when we study history we have to do that. but it doesn't mean we can't judge it through our modern eyes.

thought crime. it's a fucking scary thing.

anyways, anyone who's interested, the first episode starts with this link.
(i'm about to watch episode 4 now!)
