Cullen Murphy - God's Jury

Monday, January 23, 2012 - 7:00pm
In his comprehensive history of the Inquisition, Murphy, editor-at-large for Vanity Fair and the author of Are We Rome?, chronicles an institution with a longer lifespan and a wider reach than most people suspect. Established by the Catholic Church in 1231, the Inquisition lasted into the 20th century. Charged with rooting out heretics, it developed techniques of surveillance, censorship, and interrogation that have since been adopted by other organizations.
