History of the Inquisitions is an international research group within the larger working group, Religious Expansion: Civilizations and Cultures of CEHR, in collaboration with the Chair of Sephardic Studies Alberto Benveniste. This group includes a variety of institutions as well as national and international collaborators.

Recognizing in the phenomenon of the inquisitions a plural historical reality, the affiliated researchers seek to promote comparative reflection on the different institutional manifestations of the Holy Office with the ultimate goal of gaining a better understanding of its penetration into the social fabric and its impact on mentalities and behaviors.

At this website, it will be possible to view the work and results fostered by this group.
